JOHNSTON – 100 runners from across the state of Iowa broke a world record Saturday afternoon at Johnston High School.
The 100 X 5K. Each runner runs a 5K, passes the baton to the next runner and so on and so on until all 100 runners are finished.
The run started Friday at noon and it ended Saturday afternoon a little after 4:00, just over 28 hours.
The old record was 30 hours, so the Iowa runners set a new world record.
Event coordinator Tyson Wieland ran the anchor leg.
