Denis McCarthy's record running streak comes to an end after 28 years...
In Ireland, it is widely recogised that the person with the longest continuous running streak is Denis McCarthy of East Cork AC.
Having started on the 5th of June 1985, Denis has run at least one mile per day up until the 10th of June 2013 when a bad fall resulted in a fracture to a bone in his leg. That makes a total of 28 years and 4 days without a break, an incredible 10,232 days of running.
