World record at Torque

Tom Luke (Torque Training director) set a world record distance covered in his 24-hour Ski Erg event in aid of Lexi Robins and the Friends of FOP Charity to raise awareness and funding.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare disorder in which muscle tissue and connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments are gradually replaced by bone (ossified), forming bone outside the skeleton that limits movement.

Tom started at 10am on the 4th November and finished at 10am on 5th November. The previous record stood at 296,366m which Tom passed by covering a distance of 305,044m, a new world record.

Tom reports that ‘the community of Torque Training, members, family and friends were just incredible throughout the 24 hours. It was a very special day for so many reasons. We had over 5,000 views on our live stream and reached a massive audience worldwide.’
