Although Guinness decided that it would be ‘too hard’ to qualify future attempts, we believe that the 129F 2013 mile was the hottest ever run by a human being.
To begin with, 129F ties for the hottest day on earth in modern times. (Christopher Burt of Weather Underground also strongly suspects that the 131F and 134F – the current record holders – at Greenland Ranch in the 1930’s were erroneous.) Secondly, there is no suggestion that anybody was out running back then.
Above is the edited version – below is the full, rather dull video. It’s not as much fun as the others as I had it shot purely to demonstrate to the record-keepers that I did indeed run the full distance.
Also, here is the GPS record of the run, for those who are interested.
