About 38,000 runners competed in the London Marathon today – and one of them ran it in orbit 200 miles above Earth.
British astronaut Tim Peake completed the 26.2 mile course at the International Space Station with an estimated time of 3:35.21 , the European Space Agency tweeted.
He was also the official starter of the race in a video message played at the starting line. “I’m really excited to be able to join the runners on earth from right here on board the Space Station. Good luck to everybody running, and I hope to see you all at the finish line,” Peake told his fellow competitors.
