She set off with the greatest confidence and ran more than 2,000 miles in 39 days but, hugely disappointingly, multiple Guinness World Record holder Marvelous Mimi Anderson’s run across America has been called off due to injury. Just over a week ago on October 18th, having battled for several days through knee pain, an MRI scan revealed bone oedema and the risk of serious stress fractures if she carried on with the run.
After consultation with her medical team and discussions with her support team, Mimi decided she had to call off the remainder of the run, with only a little over 650 miles left to go.
Even so, it was a great achievement and will have raised much needed funds for her two charities Marie Curie Nurses and Free to Run and we are sure that she will return to running when she has recovered from the effects of this to have many more adventures on the road.
