Running 100k is a monumental thing. Doing it on a running track, even more so. Finishing the distance in a time of 6h 05m 41s boggles the mind. That is what Aleksandr Sorokin did at the Centurion Running Track 100, eclipsing Japan’s Nao Kazami previous 100k world record of 6:09:14 from 2018.

To put that into the context of pace - that’s 5:53 min/mile or 3:39 min/km pace for 62.2 miles/100 kilometers.

No stranger to impressive running records, Sorokin already holds world records for 100 miles (11:14:56), distance covered in 12 hours with 105.825 miles and the world record for distance ran in 24 hours with 192.25 miles.

He wasn't the only runner to break records at the event though as Sam Amend set a new British record for 100 miles with a time of 14:10:41.
