Quarantined Man Runs Marathon On Apartment Balcony During French Coronavirus Lockdown

Quarantined Man Runs Marathon On Apartment Balcony During French Coronavirus Lockdown

As people are trying to find a way to keep themselves entertained during coronavirus (Covid-19) quarantine, one man has cured his boredom by running along his balcony - until he completes a marathon:

Elisha Nochomovitz spend a grand total of six hours and 48 minutes running 26.2 miles around the 7m balcony of his apartment in Toulouse, France.

The video, which was shared online, shows the 32-year-old running up and down the balcony where he completed around 6,000 laps.


In an interview with HuffPost France, the restaurant worker said: "I wanted to bring something playful to the containment. I saw pictures of people going out of their homes for jogging.

"But if everyone does the same, we will all end up outside. Part of my goal was to kill as much time as possible."

With France on a 15-day lockdown - and talks of potentially extending it - Nochomovitz is now wondering what he can do next, adding: "How about another marathon to improve my record. Or a 12-hour home trainer session, on my balcony?"
