Prince Edward Island’s Michael Bergeron took to the track at the University of Prince Edward Island while juggling to attempt the record for fastest 10K three-object jog.

July 11 (News) — A Canadian runner unofficially broke a Guinness World Record for jogging – juggling while running – when he covered a distance of 6.2 miles in 34 minutes and 47 seconds.

Bergeron finished the race in 34 minutes and 47 seconds, beating the current record of 36 minutes and 27 seconds.

Bergeron attempted the record back in 2018, finishing with a time of 35 minutes and 36 seconds, but his run was disqualified for technical reasons.

Bergeron said evidence of his latest attempt would now be submitted to Guinness World Records for official recognition.

“I broke the record at 1:40 so it feels pretty good. Now I just hope Guinness recognizes it because it’s on a certified track. I’m feeling exhausted, my feet hurt but super happy,” he told SaltWire.

The runner previously broke the record for fastest half marathon while jogging three objects at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in October 2018.
