Nurses post scrubs selfies in support of marathon runner denied world record


A marathon runner was denied the ‘fastest nurse’ world record because she didn’t wear a dress
Jessica Anderson trained for the London Marathon with a goal: She wanted to be the fastest woman to complete the race dressed as a nurse.




Breaking the Guinness World Record was “a challenge but not totally out of reach,” Anderson said, and on April 28, she accomplished the feat — crossing the marathon finish line at 3:08:22 — faster than the 3:08:54 record.


But her timing wasn’t enough to take the title, according to Guinness World Records, whose criteria for a nurse’s uniform is based on mid-20th century ideas.


Because Anderson ran wearing medical scrubs and not a dress, she did not qualify as a record-breaker.
