If you’re into fitness, then you’ve heard the name Marcus Smith.

He recently challenged himself to run for 24 hours straight, sounds mad difficult doesn’t it?

But guess what, he did it.

Smith has taken it to a whole new level

Marcus Smith is known for completely 30 marathons in 30 days, so a challenge like that was a piece of cake for him at least that’s what it looked like on his Insta stories.

This inspiring athlete strongly believes in developing mental strength through physical challenges.

“Apart from feeling like a bus ran over me I actually feel pretty decent so far.”

He’s definitely a human machine to be able to complete a challenge like that.

The 24 hour run took place on a running track in Sports city where he ran over 200km.

Plenty of people showed up to support him.

I still don’t really know what to say aside from THANK YOU. To my super human wife @smithstpaleo who was there for the full 24 hours and to every single person that ran, messaged or just thought about me. You are all amazing humans. I will do a full right up later but for now. The goal was 201km. 12 hours in I knew I could hit that so set a new goal of 211km (5 marathons) with 6 hours remaining I knew it was going to be tight but if I kept pushing I would do it. With about 90 minutes remaining I epically “hit the wall” aside from the pain I spent 10 minutes sat on a toilet showering myself with the butt hose. The last 75 minutes was torture (probably also for all the legends that came to support me having to run that slow) but that’s the beauty of these things, you never know what may happen. I could have easily settled for 201km but that’s not what we were put on earth for, we were put here to live, to learn and to test our human potential. End result 206.9km. Yesterday many people ran more than ever and that motivates and inspires me beyond reason. So thank you and please continue to RUN STRONG. #runstrong
