French man marathons in place

What is a marathoner to do when he is home bound by the COVID crisis?

Frenchman Elisha Nochomovitz was distraught when the pandemic caused the cancellation of the Barcelona Marathon. So he decided to run his own marathon while sheltering in place in his apartment located in the southwestern French town of Balma.

It took him 6 hours and 48 minutes of running back and forth on the apartment’s 23-foot long terrace, but he made sure his run was the equivalent of a standard 42.195 kilometer [26 mile] marathon.
