Des Linden – World Record Setter


Congratulations are in order for COROS Pro Athlete Des Linden on setting a new 50k World Record on Tuesday, April 13th in Oregon. Des with her COROS APEX 42mm crushed the 31+ mile course in a mind-blowing time of 2:59:54 - truly an amazing accomplishment.

Now take a peek at all of the amazing data from her record-breaking run which Des was kind enough to share. From mile splits to cadence and even running power – take a look!

Fastest Mile
Des covered the 50km yesterday in 2:59:54 (apparently, she was a little too excited to stop her watch at the exact finish). That’s an average pace per mile of 5’47” with a fastest mile of 5’33”.

Cadence and Stride Length
Her cadence was very stable with an average of 194 per minute. The average stride length was 4.72 ft, impressive!

Running Power and Elevation
Des had an average power output of 216 watts with her max power at 249 watts. This course was not flat - 636 ft of elevation gain mostly from 2 big climbs is pretty challenging, but then again she did conquer heart break hill in 2018 so climbs are nothing new for Des!
