This challenge is going to be incredibly tough, physically and mentally. But I know that after 24 hours I will stop and feel immediately better. My pain is short-lived.
261.18km, this is the distance Luca managed to run in 24 hours on a treadmill setting a new World Record. During an intense race against the clock, with many ups and downs, Luca showed an incredible determination, resilience and mental toughness to endure the physical and mental pain of the challenge. In extremely hot conditions, Luca battled chafing, cramps and his own internal deamons to deliver a nearly perfect race and achieve the record distance with 3 minutes to spare!
