Marathon runner Pan Shancu has reportedly run 31 miles in his apartment in Hangzhou, China, where he remains trapped due to the coronavirus quarantine.

Shancu, who is used to running regularly, has been clocking up miles in his tiny apartment in order to stay fit.

During the quarantine, citizens are being advised to stay inside as much as possible to avoid contracting the coronavirus. Shancu has been running in his tiny apartment, by running around two tables and down the length of his hall. He has so far clocked up 31 miles.

According to news reports, Shancu, who has a marathon PB of two hours and 59 minutes, recently ran 6,250 circuits in one of the rooms in his flat.

Taking to social media, Shancu wrote, “I have not been outside for many days, but today I could not bear sitting around anymore. Let’s run laps around the two massage tables in the room then! Yes, one lap is about eight metres (26 feet) and I ran 50 kilometres (31 miles), I did it in 4:48:44. I am sweating all over, feels great!”
