The best of all time is however the 24 hour record of Yiannis Kouros - 303.506 km or 188 miles 1308 yards. This will still be around long after we have all become wormfood.

I agree. Averaging a pace of 7:37/mile for 24 hours straight without a rest, stopping, slowing down is absolutely stunning. That's over 7 consecutive marathons in 3:20 each. Think about how worn out the body would feel just running 2 marathons b2b at that pace and you still wouldn't have run a third as far as Kouros did at that pace. I can't imagine this record ever being broken.
