So now this whole thread is going to DQ her 521 mile treadmill record because some no-name local newspaper can't get the units right? Fortunately Amy's charity partners are not vulnerable to such dissension.

No, someone was simply pointing out an issue with self-measured "courses" in this kind of situation - you do realise that to be called a recognised Marathon, a race permit will need to have been obtained which will have to have a certificate of course distance accuracy measured with a Jones Counter ?[/quote]

OK, say it's 520 miles (like LRC headline says) instead of 521. That's still enough for the record. If Guinness wanted Strava data on Power of 10, then they should have named the record "Most Treadmill Distance in a Week while livestreaming Strava to Power of 10".[/quote]

No the proof Guiness required was fairly minimal. She still didn't meet that

Is her 52 in 53 marathon listed as a Guinness world record? Surely some evidence such as Strava would be required for a 'world record' Every man and his dog is using Strava surely someone attempting a world record would use it, especially as she would need a Garmin to measure the courses.
