Adam Holland, England Athletics 50k Ultra Distance Champion and Guinness World Record holder, won the Logicom Cyprus marathon this weekend.
His latest victory takes his total number of marathons run to 344 with 195 wins and ranks him top five in the world for marathon victories.
Alongside Adam, this prestigious event, now in its 20th year, saw over 2,500 people competing, including a large number of British runners.
The spectacular course starts at Petra Tou Romiou – legendary birthplace of Aphrodite – and finishes in front of the former Byzantine fort at Kato Paphos harbour where huge crowds gather to cheer the runners to the finish line.
Adam, who is 30 and a member of the Tavistock Athletics Club, said of the achievement: “I’ve not taken part in this marathon before, the atmosphere was brilliant, the course is stunning and I am hoping to return again next year”.
He completed the Logicom Cyprus marathon in a staggering time of 2 hours 46 minutes, but wants to return next year to beat the course record (set by Salameh Al Aqra from Jordan in 2005) of 2 hours 33 minutes.
