On day 10, Jo's accumulated time was 39 hours 03 minutes and 21 seconds. As everything was recorded and witnessed, that should be a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time on a treadmill for running 10 marathons in 10 days.
Yesterday on Christmas Eve, Jo finished the 12th and final marathon in the fastest time yet of 3:51.
In fact, every day her times for the marathon have been remarkably consistent...
3:53, 3:55, 3:55, 3:55, 3:55, 3:55, 3:53, 3:57, 3:55, 3:53, 3:55, 3:51
The main aim of the 12 marathons in 12 days was of course to raise funds for the neo-natal ward at Cork CUH. Between online donations and passers by, Jo has raised an amazing €12,169. If anyone would like to top it up, you can find the online donation page HERE
