Two children have six World Records to their name on all seven continents

Mekaal (10) and Zara Rahim (11) became the youngest male and female in the world to achieve the feat when they crossed the line in Canberra, Australia. The previous record was held by Americans, Bianca Ramirez and Nik Toocheck, who were both 12 when they did it. In addition Mekaal and Zara also achieved World Records for: youngest siblings to complete a marathon on each continent and youngest male and female to complete an ultra-marathon in Antarctica. They are now just a few World Records behind their father Ziyad, who holds 10 himself in long-distance running, with both youngsters aspiring to break them when they grow up. Zara and Mekaal, who spend every summer with their grandparents and cousins in Craigmarloch, began their challenge last July after being inspired by a documentary about Syrian refugees.
