Sanden Sets World Record

San Clemente resident Beth Sanden completed the Pho Quoc International Marathon in Vietnam on June 11 and was officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the first female hand cyclist to traverse seven marathons on seven continents. Sanden, who is partially paralyzed, looped the track in Vietnam with a time of three hours, 12 minutes and 25 seconds. Sanden uses a custom hand cycle when participating in marathons.

By completing the marathon, Sanden completed her years-long quest for conquering seven marathons on seven continents. Sanden had previously accomplished the feat last year, but had to revisit the Asian continent for a marathon due to an officiating holdup from a prior race director that left her previous effort in doubt. Sanden worked with Guinness World Records to ensure her race in Vietnam was recognized and validated.

Sanden, who has completed a marathon on Antarctica, is planning on traveling to the North Pole for a marathon in 2017.
