Who is the Youngest Marathon Runner in the World?
The youngest marathon runner in the world was Budhia Singh, an Indian child only 4 ½ years old. He actually ran more than a marathon, totaling a distance of 40 miles. He ran this ridiculous length in May of 2006. The tiny marathon runner was sold shortly after childbirth for some of less than $20. This was before he’d run the marathon.
