Tim Peake ran a 53,000 mile virtual race in 3 hours 25 minutes

Astronaut Tim Peake participated in the London Marathon from the International Space Station last weekend, covering the official distance of 26.2 miles in three hours and 25 minutes.

Since he was weightless, Peake used a harness to anchor himself to the treadmill.  During the virtual race, the station covered 53,000 miles in orbit, making Peake both the fastest and most ultra runner in human history.

This is not Peake’s first go at the London Marathon, having finished in 1999 in three hours, 18 minutes and 50 seconds.
