Just having a think with the olympics coming up, there will likely be some new world records achieved. Then I started thinking, what is the longest standing running record?
First port of call was to check out Yiannis Kouros as he holds so many records, in fact everything from 100 - 1000 miles and 12 hours - 6 days is his! His earliest still standing record I could see is 1984 (in fact he holds 3 from that year). The only one I know of being earlier is Billy Bland's Bob Graham Round in 1982. There must be some older than that... any ideas?
