“I’ve been running for 23 years now. I starting when I was about 12. I was on the junior high school cross country team, and and ever since then I have barely missed a single day of running.” Solarz said in an interview with The Week, “My two favorite marathons are the New York City Marathon, which I’ve done 11 times in a row, and the Boston Marathon, which I’ve done nine times in a row now. I think it’s really comforting knowing I’ll always be doing those races, hopefully for the rest of my life.”
His previous world World Records, according to the paper, include:
- 2 marathons
- stopping at all New York’s 468 subway stops in less than 24 hours
- visiting 250 bars in less than 24 hours
- climbing 33,000ft up stairs in less than 12 hours.

Solarz ran a 12-hour stint on a treadmill, clocking up a 77.07 miles. There is some discrepancy here as Guinness reports: “The greatest distance run on a treadmill in 12 hours is 123.400 km (97.68 miles) and was achieved by Eusébio Bochons (Switzerland, Spain), at Atlantide Wellness Center, in Gland, Switzerland, on 7 December 2013.”
Guinness has been contacted by HedgeCo, and is investigating the claim, saying: “Our records management team are currently awaiting a submission of evidence.”
