Record Run 2007 - Imagine running a marathon while pushing a baby stroller with winds gusting to 40 miles per hour. That’s what Michael Wardian, age 33 of Arlington, Virginia did to win third place overall in the Frederick Marathon AND set a WORLD RECORD for a runner pushing a stroller in a Marathon. His time was 2:42:21. Michael is no stranger to the Frederick Marathon as he won first place the last two years. This year he decided to bring his 9-month-old son along.

Below are the rules runner Michael Wardin followed to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the Fastest Marathon while pushing a Pram (Stroller).
PRAM PUSHING (HALF OR FULL MARATHON) GUIDELINES 1 - The half or full marathon must be an officially organized event that the participant must enter through the official channels. 2 - The pram should be one that is commercially available and contain a living individual. 3 - The individual in the pram must be safely strapped in. 4 - Confirmation that the pram was pushed solely by the participant for the complete distance is required. 5 - A copy of the official results should be submitted to confirm the time taken. 6 - Official confirmation from the course surveyor is required to confirm the distance of the course. 7 - The event is continuous and so if the competitor takes rest breaks the clock does not stop.
