Ghanaian Man,Seidu Rafiwu Finishes 4-Day Walk-a-thon From Techiman to Accra 🎊 The Scoper Media

A resident from Techiman in the Bono East Region of Ghana embarked on a four-day journey in an attempt to surpass the current Guinness World Record for the longest walking marathon.

Seidu Rafiwu, who initiated his ambitious four-day walk from Techiman to Accra, covered a distance of 383 kilometers in a bid to surpass the 48-year-old record held by America’s Jesse Casteneda.

He completed the walking marathon at Ghana’s Independence Square on Tuesday, just hours before noon.

Rafiwu is confident that his achievement will meet the criteria for the Guinness World Record for the longest distance covered on foot.

When questioned about the possibility of not breaking the record, Rafiwu responded confidently to JoySports, saying, “Marsha Allah, nothing is going to happen that way. If it does, it is God’s will.”

He added, “Yes, I will still try [If not successful]. As a man, you do not give up.”

Rafiu’s spokesperson, Nushirat Abubakar, revealed that he initially aimed to become a professional footballer, but switched to marathon walking after unsuccessful attempts in the sport.

“The ambition he has was sports, a professional footballer but along the line, he realised that achieving that dream was difficult.

“He said why not try to be a military personnel. We tried our best, he keeps applying almost every year [it was not successful]. Finally, he brought up this one [walk-a-thon].
