Calum Neff and his daughter may be considered one of the fastest father-daughter duos in Canada after Neff raced to the win at the Katy Half-Marathon in Texas to set an unofficial stroller world record by more than two minutes.
Travis Boyd holds the previous Guinness World Record while pushing a stroller having set the record (1:13:50) in Everett, Wash. in 2013 at the Heroes Half-Marathon.
Neff’s official time while pushing the stroller on Sunday was 1:11:27. He also won the half-marathon last year.
Neff, 31 and a father of two, attended high school in Calgary and now lives in the Houston area. He has represented Canada at the World Mountain Running Championships.
Sunday’s race marks Neff’s second great performance of 2016. He was the top Canadian at the Houston Marathon in mid-January before testing his fitness in Katy, Texas.

He recorded the entire 21.1K race with a GoPro and the race was USATF certified increasing the likelihood that the record will be ratified by Guinness.
