Love from Space

Running a marathon from space

Tim Peake completed a whole marathon in the international space station when he virtually ran the London Marathon. He also set the record for the fastest space marathon completed.

He is a British astronaut that completed the marathon in 3 hours, 35 minutes. He started running at 10 AM using a treadmill designed with a harness to strap Tim down so he could run. He was virtually at the starting line while his messaged streamed to people. He was super excited to share this amazing memory with everyone. Thousands of people run this marathon every year.

Peake was the second time an astronaut ran a marathon from space. He said he maintained hydrated while running. The hardest part was at the 18 miles. He had to drink one pouch of water per hour. It was an incredible experience.
