Last month we reported on Rait Ratasepp’s record for 20 consecutive full-distance races, which he set despite having been hit by a car and losing quite a bit of time. He’s on a new bike now and continues to set new records during his effort on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura.

The Estonian is completing a full-distance triathlon every day that includes 3.8 km of swimming in the pool at the Playitas resort, followed by a 180 km bike that includes 1,800 m of climbing and a 42.2 km run with 300 m of elevation gain. He’s averaged an incredible 11:06 for those efforts through the first 33 days.

Ratasepp reached the halfway point of his effort (30 consecutive days) in 333 hours, 27 minutes and 12 seconds. That’s over 23 hours faster than Hungary’s Jozsef Rokob took to complete the first 30 full-distance triathlons in 30 days effort in 2013, and breaks Ratasepp’s own record on the way to his 40-day effort in 2019 (334:07:21) by over 40 minutes.

Ratasepp’s marathon times are nothing short of amazing – he’s averaged 3:17 each day.
