— My run around the world —
Fastest Woman to run around the world
Me in a nutshell
I am Marie Leautey, known as Lootie, a French runner who completed a fully certified run around the world on 1st September 2022.
The world run took me across 4 continents from Ocean to Ocean, covering a total distance of 28,300 km (avge speed 9,1 k/h).
I finished the crossing of Europe (15,420km) June 24th 2021, the crossing of North America (5,383km) on November 24th 2021, the crossing of South America (3,002km) on March 10th 2022, and Australia & New Zealand (4,500km) on 1st September 2022.
