Two women entered the Guinness of Records for the fastest time running the London Marathon - handcuffed to each other.
Kerry Bullen, 48, from Burwell, ran the marathon on October 3 while handcuffed to partner Troi Baxter in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record.
And that is exactly what the pair did.
“We are both still buzzing after Sunday and so pleased to have smashed the record to become Guinness World Record holders at an amazing event,” Kerry and Troi said.
The double act finished the course in three hours, 30 minutes and eight seconds, smashing their initial target of under four hours and 30 minutes.
They also raised over £6,000 for children’s brain tumour charity, Tom’s Trust in memory of Tom Whiteley, who died aged nine-years-old from a brain tumour.
Debs Whiteley, Tom’s mother who co-founded the charity, said: “We are so thrilled that Kerry and Troi smashed the world record.”
