Marathon man Gary McKee has seen his astonishing running feat turn him into a record breaker.

The 47-year-old is continuing his 100 marathons in 100 days to raise thousands for Macmillan Cancer Support, completing his 61st today.

As part of his incredible achievement he has smashed the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive marathons run by a man, which was previously 55.

Gary, who is continuing to go to work at Sellafield while running his daily marathons, said: "I'm in a routine and have been improving my times, this week running one of the marathons in three hours and 20 minutes.''

This weekend will see him catch up on some much-needed sleep as he has some time off work.

"Even an extra couple of hours helps,'' he said.

Gary, of Cleator Moor, has taken on the gruelling task to raise money for the charity in memory of his father, Victor, who would have been celebrating his 80th birthday this year.

He continues to be supported on his marathons by runners and cyclists. "It does help when people are with you,'' he said.

The father-of-three from Cleator Moor will finish on April 23 when he runs the London Marathon.

He also continues to be consistently the top runner across the world on social media fitness app Strava.
