American marathoner Brian S. Hurwitz, from Florida, U.S, ran his 100th marathon last Sunday in Walt Disney World, in Orlando, the same place where 17 years ago he began participating in marathons to “exercise and have fun.”

One year after his first marathon in 2005, one of his youngest sons was diagnosed with cancer And going for a run became a way of coping with worry and releasing stress.

Surrounded by his children and grandchildren, Hurwitz celebrated his arrival at the finish line last Sunday and having passed the very tough test of having run 100 marathons.

As he said in a video released by Disney, each of the 100 races it has been “special” for him, but this was even more so because of the number and because it took place where his career as a marathoner began.

“It is a way of showing my children that everything you propose to yourself, You can do it”Said the runner.

The Brazilian Vanilson Neves was the winner of the 42 km race that was run this Sunday throughout the four Disney theme parks in Orlando, EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, with a time of 2:30:37.

Brittany Charboneau, de Colorado, accomplished the feat of winning in the women’s category, the four events of this sporting event (5,000 meters, 10,000 meters, half marathon and full marathon), something never before achieved in the 29-year history of these competitions.
