Iron Cowboy adds one more full-distance race to his record


On Tuesday we reported that Canadian James Lawrence, known as the Iron Cowboy, had added another endurance record to his already impressive list – 100 full-distance races in 100 days. Turns out that wasn’t enough, though. On Wednesday he completed another 3.8 km swim (1:23:46), 180 km bike (6:11:43) and 42.2 km run (7:36:42) to make it 101 straight days of completing those distances.

“I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now,” he commented on his website after the effort.

The 101 straight days of racing can now be added to a resume that includes a record of 22  half-distance races in 33 weeks he set in 2010 and his 30 full-distance races completed in one year in 2012. In 2015 he completed 50 full-distance races in 50 days in 50 different states. That effort inspired a book called Iron  Cowboy – Redefine  the Impossible, and a documentary called Iron  Cowboy – the story of the 50-50-50.
