They ran a marathon a day on a raw vegan diet

Raw food runners Janette Murray-Wakelin and her partner Alan Murray broke the world record for running the longest number of consecutive marathons.

In 2013 they ran a marathon a day across Australia for 365 days, then did one more for good measure, making a total of 366. To put this into perspective, they ran 16,000km which is equivalent to running from Sydney to New York!

Both in their 60s, Janette is a cancer survivor. In her book Raw Can Cure Cancer, she talks about how eating a raw food, vegan diet was a natural cancer cure for her and catapulted her to good health.

In this interview with Dr Tracie O’Keefe DCH, clinical hypnotherapist and naturopath in Sydney, running world record holders Janette and Alan discuss their journey to raise awareness of health, how to beat cancer, compassion to all beings, including animals, and sustainability.

This couple are a fantastic example of how to be a healthy runner by consuming a pure vegetarian ie vegan diet.

“We took it to an extreme for most people but we showed there are no limits when you are in optimum health. We knew we’d be in the media for a whole year and wanted to get our message out there. The point of what we did wasn’t to motivate people to run marathons but show what is possible, especially at our age.” – Janette Murray-Wakelin

“As we went on, we got stronger, running faster – not more exhausted. It got better, so with every step we got younger. You’re never too old or young to make these changes to your health.” – Alan Murray
