The people who are passionate about running have a compelling way to keep both their body and brain in excellent condition. And the passion for running has even given a world record to a young girl from India. By running 6,002 km in a Golden Quadrilateral in 110 days, 23 hours, and 24 minutes, an Indian runner Sufiya Khan has set a new Guinness World Record.

The remarkable journey of Sufiya Khan began in New Delhi on 16 December 2020 and ended on 6 April 2021. She completed the challenge in the fastest time by a woman, running on a network of highways connecting Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Chennai. The record is for the fastest time to run the Indian Golden Quadrilateral by a female. Recently, the Guinness World Records officially recognized this record and Sufiya Khan received a certificate that verified her record.

After receiving the honour for her world record, Sufiya stated that she did not think of giving up on the entire attempt. She met multiple injuries during the run yet her full focus was merely on completing the attempt in the minimum time possible. Sufiya was supported on her run by her husband, who drove a support car to take care of her nutrition and physiotherapy and managed her schedule for running. And besides this, local runners and cyclists from the various parts of the journey joined her in different areas.

Sufiya Khan even holds one more record to her name, which is the fastest woman to run from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in 87 days, 2 hours, 17 minutes in 2019. Moreover, this ultrarunner has also crossed the 480 km Manali-Leh Highway in 6 days, 12 hours, and 6 minutes. She has likewise completed the Delhi-Agra-Jaipur-Delhi run in 16 days, 1 hour, and 27 minutes. Sufiya Khan has run many such trails, as it’s her passion to run the tracks and stay athletic. And after her latest world record, this self-taught athlete is currently being hailed by countless people and even helped by sports companies for her great endeavor.
