The world record for longest run without stopping is 350 miles, held by Dean Karnazes. The run took 80 hours and was made possible by a rare genetic condition which allows Karnazes’ body to rapidly flush lactic acid and prevent it from building up. He said that during the run he fell asleep and continued running that way. During the last 50 miles Karnazes said that he felt totally dissociated with his body and couldn’t even feel the pain that he was feeling earlier anymore. The run acted as a fundraiser for children’s organ donation.
