Online PR News – 04-December-2012 – Auckland – A new Guinness World Record for the fastest 10km run while pushing a pram has been made by Dunedin runner DougalThorburn (31) and his daughter Audrey (2½) on 14th October 2012 at the New Balance Hill Free 10km race at Outram, New Zealand.

Despite unfavourable conditions, Dougalachieved the target with a record time of 32minutes 26seconds at the New Balance Hill Free event. The big difference in his successful world record attempt was his plan to push his Chariot Child Carrier with his 2½ year old daughter Audrey inside. In order to beat the current world record and especially for his daughter’s safety, he needed to have a highly durable& high performance running pram.With the outstanding performance and durability of a Chariot Carrierit was the obvious and perfectchoice for Dougal.

On the 14th of October 2012, Dougal attempted and successfully broke the World Record for the "Fastest 10km running while pushing a pram" and forced the World Record officials to re-write their record books with the new achievement.He was lined up with some of the Otago’s best runners on the Sunday morning at the New Balance Hill Free 10km race at Outram, but unlike the other runners, Dougalwas pushing a Chariot running pram, with Audrey inside it!

The major goal driving Dougal to succeed was the potential world record, but he has two other main reasons for doing this: The first is to promote sustainability (and high performance) transport & the second is to celebrate the good times he's had with his family. He is in particular a fan of combining physical activity with transport and advocates for replacing short car trips with active forms of transport like walking, running or cycling.

Chariot Carriers’ high performance prams and strollers are known for their high durability and efficiency. Chariot Carriers design their products for long term usage with better performance in a wide variety of conditions. Dougal is very impressed with the durability and performance of his Chariot. He has been using the Chariot baby carriages for many years now, and it has truly enabled him to get outside, remain competitive and have an awesome time with his kids.Dougal has put in a huge effort here and it is important to remember his simple message about sustainable transport.
