Jacob Puzey Runs a World Record for 50 Miles on a Treadmill @ 4:57:45 (5:56/mile pace), broke the old record by almost an hour  Jacob even ran a 2:38 marathon on the way to the 50 mile time.

The Fukuoka Marathon n Japan was this last weekend (12/4/2016) and you probably did not hear much about it.  Back in my day 70's and early 80's it was one of the go-to top marathons that many top marathoners from all over went to.  This years winning time was 2:08:48 by Yemane Tsegay and second was 2:08:57 by former world record holder Patrick Makau.  Here is a short video of the race.  It is in Japanese but you do not need to speak the language to tell the announcers are rooting for the third place Yuki Kawauchi who ended up running 2:09:11.
