Today’s Trivia: The record for most marathons run on consecutive days is 365! Belgian runner Stefaan Engels, knows as the “Marathon Man” set the record in 2011, aged 49!
Bonus Trivia: Everest may be the tallest mountain (in terms of distance above sea level), but Mount Chimborazo is both the point that is closest to the moon and farthest from the centre of the Earth as a result of the slight bulge our planet has around its equator. This means Mount Chimborazo, loacted in Ecuador and very close to the equator, sticks out further than Everest by around one and a half miles.
Taken from one of my all time favourite Dr Who episodes, S04E10 of the modern series titled ‘Midnight’. An episode that skillfully builds suspense not with special effects, but with nothing more than clever dialogue that is brilliantly executed, combined with a well matched soundtrack.
