French man runs marathon on his balcony

Mar 21, 2020

Whilst all the up-coming marathons and races in South Africa have been cancelled until mid-April at least, we can be thankful that we are still able to run on the streets and trails. France has recently gone into a lock down which, among other things, restricts runners to only training within a 2km radius of their home.

It’s been reported by the Huffington Post that a French runner, Elisha Nochomovitz, killed some time in confinement by completing a marathon distance by running up and down his 7 meter long apartment balcony in Toulouse, France. It took him just over 6 hours and 48 minutes.
