Jockey Ross Birkett breaks Guinness World Record in London Marathon
Congratulations to amateur jockey Ross Birkett, son of Newmarket trainer Julia Feilden, who has set a new Guiness World Records title for the Fastest Marathon dressed as a jockey, reaching the finish line in 3 hours 8 minutes and 30 seconds.
This was a huge achievement for Ross, who broke his foot only 6 weeks ago! He wore breeches, silks, a helmet and goggles and had to carry a whip for the entire 26.2 miles and his time was incredible. Well done Ross!
