    In an attempt to break the Guinness world record for the longest distance run on a treadmill in 24 hours, Christopher Bergland & Dean Karnazes are running side by side at Kiehl

    Crazy stuff. Don't know too much about Christopher Bergland (the winner), but I know that Dean Karnazes is famous for feats like this...

    The story says that one dude DID fall off with 1/3 of a mile to go. He managed to pull himself together and get the record.

    piece of cake for karnazes since he ran a 300 mile marathon non-stop for 3 days.

    He's not a fast runner but he's got endless endurance....so probably why he didnt win this feat...
