Dad Wins Half-Marathon and Breaks World Record While Pushing His Daughter In A Stroller

One dad decided to share his lifelong passion for running with his 11-month-old daughter in record-breaking fashion by pushing her in her stroller while he completed a half marathon.


Callum Neff won the Katy Half Marathon in Katy, Texas, clocking in at 1 hour, 11 minutes, and 27 seconds, on Saturday while pushing his 20-pound daughter in her 22-pound sport stroller, for 13.1 miles.

The victory was a thrill for Neff, who managed to beat the Guinness World Records time for fastest half-marathon run by a man while pushing a stroller by more than two minutes. The record was last made in 2013, with a time of 1hr 13m 50s.


Callum documented the race with video and witnesses, and plans to submit his evidence to GWR in a bid to become the record-holder.

“It was just a truly epic day to share with my youngest daughter,” 31-year-old Neff told Today. “It shows that anything is really possible and being a dad and working doesn’t mean you have to give up on other dreams and hobbies. We’ve been on cloud nine. It’s really special to share that with Holland.”
