Longest scarf knitted while running a marathon
- 21 October 2013
David Babcock combined his two loves - knitting and running - as he attempted to set a world record for the longest scarf knitted while running a marathon.
The university professor from America ran the Kansas City Marathon this weekend, knitting a huge scarf along the way.
He did it all in an impressive five hours and 48 minutes and managed to make a scarf almost 3.7 metres long!
He's now awaiting official confirmation from Guinness World Records.
David's scarf makes the current world record by Susie Hewer of the UK - a scarf of around two metres long - look quite small.
