A Lebanese man set a Guinness World Record for the fastest crossing of Lebanon on foot — in just 1 day, 15 hours and 49 minutes!
Ali Wehbi set the record in the town of Naqoura, one of the southernmost points on the Lebanese coast.
The avid runner started the run on March 31 and ended on April 2, which is World Autism Awareness Day.
“This run is dedicated to all persons with autism, all families dealing with it,” Wehbi said. “It’s also dedicated to all autism organizations offering support, research and treatments, each and every person is touched by it directly and indirectly.”
Wehbi ran through some of Lebanon’s most iconic landmarks, including the Tropoli Castle, Raouche Rock, Saida Castle and Sour Old Heritage, the Guinness World Records reports.
The landmarks were lit in blue for the #LightItUpBlue campaign to raise awareness for autism.
Ali is known as an extreme runner and adventurer. He has a Facebook page called the International Lebanese Deserts Runner.
