We’ve been keeping up with Estonian Rait Ratasepp’s impressive full-distance exploits for the last couple of months (you can read our coverage here) – now we’re happy to report that he’s achieved his goal, setting a new record for 60 consecutive full-distance triathlons in 60 days. Ratasepp did 228 km of swimming, 10,800 km of biking and ran 2,532 km in 657:40:08. That means he averaged 10:57:40 for each full-distance tri, and averaged 3:14:39 for his marathons.

Ratasepp managed this feat despite getting hit by a car on the 14th day of his long-distance challenge.

Ratasepp’s best swim time came on the first day, when he swam 1:15:46 in the 50 m pool at the Playitas resort on Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. His best bike was on the 28th day when he rode 5:43:33 on the course that included 1,779 m of climbing. His best run came on the 41st day when he ran 3:05:53 on the 42.2 km course that included 1,779 m of elevation gain. His fastest day of racing was also that on day 41 – he went 10:28:07.
