Matthew Whittaker, a Jones Day associate in the megafirm’s Sydney office, shattered a record few people knew was there to shatter: running the fastest marathon in a suit.
Whittaker, 25, a regular runner, found the challenge tougher than expected.
“The first half was fine, but the last 15-20 kilometres were really, really horrible,” Mr Whitaker said. “It got really heavy and restrictive and slowed me down a fair bit.”
He did the run in two hours, 44 minutes and 29 seconds.
