He wants to finish 160 races by Dec. 31.
Who says marathoners don’t have fun?
Trent Morrow of Sydney, Australia is definitely someone who doesn’t take himself too seriously. According to a report posted on the MLive website last weekend, Morrow is out to set a new world record: completing the most marathons in a year.
On Sunday, Morrow ran the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon, his 116th 26.2-mile race for the year.
By the end of 2013, Morrow is aiming for 160.
“It’s fun to see the kids faces light up,” says Morrow, who wears a Superman costume during his runs. “I love being able to do that. It’s a serious event and I respect the distance, but I like to put some fun back into the marathon. It’s like I transform into another character.”
Larry Macon current holds the world record at 152 marathons in a calendar year.
On average, Morrow, who is 39 years old, completes three marathons a week.
