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”.

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!
