Cliffwater Exec. Runs In Place, Sets Guinness Mark For It

Jan 24 2014 | 12:00pm ET

Hedge fund consultant Christopher Solarz is heading back into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Solarz, head of global macro hedge fund strategies at Cliffwater Associates, set his sixth such record on Saturday, running more than 77 miles on a treadmill in 12 hours. The feat broke the previous mark of 76.68 miles.

"This was the most physically demanding of all my six Guinness records," Solarz told CNBC. "I knew the record was just within my reach but I would need to get in the best shape of my life. After I put in 150 mile weeks for two months, I knew I could do it, but I still needed to execute. I had a perfect day and ended up breaking the record less than seven minutes before the 12 hour mark."

Certainly, the miles-on-a-treadmill-in-12-hours was healthier than one of Solarz's previous record-setting activities: going on the world's longest bar crawl in 2011, when he and 11 friends hit up 200 New York City bars over 10 hours. He also holds two records for marathon running, one for stair climbing and one riding the entire New York City subway system.
