Yet Another World Record For Andy McMahon!

Andy McMahon running in gas mask at the 2012 Lossiemouth half marathon - new world record

Having twice set the world record for running a Marathon wearing a gas mask - the second time was an astonishing 3hr 12m 11s at the London Marathon in 2011, you'd think Andy McMahon would have had enough. But no, he was back at the Lossiemouth half marathon last weekend aiming to set a new world record at the "shorter" distance!

Andy McMahon’s didnt just set a new world record - he smashed the previous time by over 24 minutes! ‘Gas mask Andy’s’ time was an incredible 1h 27m 23s which meant he finished in 32nd place.

Look out for his next big effort at the London marathon and perhaps look at his charity link on the club web site (to appear soon).
