Analyst From NY Hedge Fund Runs On Treadmill For 77 Hours

Chris_everestNew York (HedgeCo.Net) – A Managing Director at Cliffwater in New York and hedge fund analyst Chris Solarz has won his 6th entry into the Guinness World Records, CNBC reports.

“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.

See the video filmed below at the New Jersey at the Fitness Factory Health Club.

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.”
