Hotel Worker Runs Marathon in Hotel; Russian Runner Jogs 62 Miles Around Bed

April 24, 2020

The Premier Inn in Warrington, England, has been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but some employees have been coming in each night to make sure the property is tidy and secure. One of those employees is Louise Casey, who made the most the hotel's high vacancy rate by running a full marathon through its halls. "Instead of sitting there all night twiddling my thumbs, I ran a marathon," Casey, who's seeking Guinness recognition, told The Warrington Guardian. But Casey's feat is small beer compared to Dmitry Yakukhny, who ran 62 miles by doing laps around his bed in Russia. The Moscow Times reports that he was training for a 155-mile race through the Moroccan desert before the pandemic relegated him to his bedroom.
