Carrot-suited runner breaks marathon world record

UPI – A Utah runner broke a world record by completing an Arizona marathon in two hours, 44 minutes, 12 seconds while dressed as a carrot.

Jordan Maddocks, 35, of Draper, participated in the January 16 Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon in Phoenix, and his time of 2:44:12 beat the previous record of 2:45:08, which was set by carrot-suited runner Andrew Lawrence at London’s Virgin Money London Marathon in 2017.

Maddocks, whose efforts raised funds for substance abuse charity Release Recovery Foundation, said the carrot suit was representative of his own quest to make healthier life choices.
