Assam constable ran 156.2km barefoot in 24 hours.

Guinness Book of World RecordsGuwahati: A constable from Assam Police ran an unbelievable 156.2 km barefoot in just 24 hours, and is set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 22-year-old Abhijit Baruah, from Jorhat town in Upper Assam, starts running at 3.56 pm on Monday from Jorhat. His run within Jorhat ended at 3.56 pm on Tuesday.

This formulates Baruah to have run the longest distance barefoot in the world, said Chandrasekhar Tiwari, the Indian representative of the Guinness World Records.

“I am going to send all reports, including the video of the whole run, to the office (for them to) take a final decision,” Tiwari said.

A hundred district officials were concerned in documenting the event. Baruah took merely water and liquid food during the run.
On May 28 previous year, Baruah, a black belt in karate and kickboxing, had tried to enter the Limca Book of Records by running 150 km in 26 hours and 31 minutes.

The young man had bagged some gold, silver and bronze medals in many national-level martial arts competitions.
