The data also showed that 5.8% of the participants in the united kingdom to complete a marathon, or an ultramarathon, a race longer than the traditional 26.2 miles (42.3 km) marathon distance.
“With the growth of your run to Strava, it is mind-blowing, and I don’t think it is documented, effectively, in the past,” Strava in the UK, the country manager of The Hotel said in a statement.
“As long as we are living a more sedentary lifestyle, especially in developed countries, it may be that the appeal of the marathon, or ultramarathon distance, it is a way of fighting this trend in many of our communities.”
