Camille Herron's bio is exemplary. Camille is the 50k, 100k, 24hr World Champion holder of five world records, winner of the comrades marathon and at the time of recording, Camille was just weeks away from attempting to improve her 12 hour and 100 mile world records. Camille broke the 100 mile trail world women's record by 1hr, running 12 hrs 42mins at her first attempt ever running 100 miles. One month later, she broke the 12 hr world record. To give you some insight into just how fast Camille runs these world records, the 50 mile world record was set at 5hrs 38mins which is equivalent to a 4:12 per km pace. The 100 mile road trail world record 12hrs 42mins, was run at a 4:43 per km pace and the 24 hour road record a distance covered of 270 km was run at a 5:20 per km pace. Meanwhile, the equivalent track record that Camille set 262km, that's right running around a track for 24 hours, was set at a 5:30 per km split pace.
