Heaviest Marathon Finisher

Kelly Gneiting holds the Guinness world record for the heaviest Person to Complete a Marathon. The 40 year old, former sumo wrestling champion finished 2011 L.A marathon in a time of 9 hours, 48 minutes and 52 seconds.

Kelly showed everyone how tough it is to finish a 26 mile marathon.

  • He weighed 400P at the start and weighed 396.2 pounds after the marathon.
  • Gneiting jogged the first eight miles and walked the final 18, saying afterward that he lost track of where he was after mile 10 because he felt delirious.

Kelly, A hard days’ work!

Never Say Die Spirit

“I was really struggling in the last five miles,” he said, “but I said to myself, ‘If I have to crawl, I will.'”

THAT’S THE SPIRIT!!
