Five athletes in Guernsey have run almost 700 miles combined on T97 treadmills for charity.

Warren Mauger and Philip Smith started the EPIC48 challenge in Market Square last week and ran for 48 hours solidly.

They were joined by a number of other runners including UK athletes Robert Young, Adam Holland and Abi Schofield.

Within two hours of the challenge starting, Adam broke the world record for the men’s half marathon by 22 seconds.

Over the 48 hours he broke three world and three British records.

Abi broke the world and British records for the women’s marathon on a treadmill.

Phillip and Warren are now placed 15th and 16th in the world for the 48 hour distance on a treadmill.

Money raised from the event will go to a number of charities.
