Last updated: November 11, 2017 at 3:20 am
Lloyd Scott set the world record for the slowest marathon with a time of six days, four hours, 30 minutes and 56 seconds, at the Edinburgh Marathon in 2002. Scott wore a 50 kg (110 lbs) diving suit with hardhat for the entire race. Scott also ‘ran’ the Flora London Marathon wearing the same suit earlier that same year.
