Lindsy and Archie smash World Record

Create Tutor, Lindsy James proved herself to be both a world-class athlete and mum as she broke the Guinness World Record for being the fastest woman pushing a pram and baby over a half marathon!

Having trained six days a week since January, covering over 1000 miles in that time, Lindsy pushed a pram, weighing 10.5kg, and her son Archie, weighing 10kg, over 13 miles at this year’s Derby Ramathon. With crowds roaring as she ran into the iPro Stadium, Lindsy and Archie smashed the record by more than three minutes. FB_IMG_1467075291158 (1)

 

Lindsy chose to attempt to break the record in memory of her mother, who sadly passed away in April last year. In doing so, Lindsy expects to have raised a grand total of £4000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Rotherham Hospice that cared for her mother in her final days. Reflecting on the experience, Lindsy said:

“The miracle isn’t that we finished, it’s that we had the courage to start… The memory of that day will last a lifetime and will remain as one of the best days of our lives.”

We’re overwhelmingly proud of Lindsy for redefining what’s possible and proving what can be done when you choose to take a leap into the unknown! If you would like to express your support for Lindsy and her amazing causes, her fundraising page is still open. Click here to donate.
