Ultra-runner Carla Molinaro has smashed the women's world record for running from Land's End to John O'Groats (LEJOG) by more than 10 hours.
In the early hours of Tuesday, the exhausted 36-year-old arrived at John O'Groats 12 days, 30 minutes and 40 seconds after she left Cornwall on July 16.
Ms Molinaro was inspired to take up the challenge after the coronavirus pandemic cancelled most races.
The previous record - which sees individuals run from the tip of Cornwall to the very top of the Scottish mainland - was held by Sharon Gayter who completed the fear in 12 days, 11 hours, six minutes and seven seconds.

"That was the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life but battling the brutal winds and rain for 24 hours and trying to stay awake all night made finishing this morning worth it", Ms Molinaro said.
She set up a GoFundMe page to help her cover the cost of: tracking and data recording devices (watches, GPS & cameras), two motor homes, nutrition, hydration, petrol, crew logistics, kit, physiotherapy, maps, training, route recess and a "celebratory dinner".
Wearing a tracking device, fans were able to track her 874 mile journey, running 73 miles a day for 16 hours everyday over 12 days, via a map.
Along the way, Molinaro was joined by other runners of all abilities such as current record holder Sharon Gayter who ran with her as she passed through Cumbria.
Traditionally the LEJOG race is a cycle ride, but the ultra runner completed the route, which spans the length of Great Britain by foot.
