Green Bay man makes marathon history


A Green Bay man broke the Guinness World Record at the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon for fastest person carrying a hundred pound pounds.

William Kocken accomplished this in 6 hours and 27 minutes, breaking the previous record of 6 hours 47 minutes on a 26.2 mile journey.

"It was 17 months of hard work. I told myself 17 months ago, you're going to do this. Don't make yourself have to go through another marathon to get this record. We said, we're going to keep grinding, and keep grinding, and that's what we're going to do,” said Kocken.

He is also raising money to help local veterans for 4th H.O.O.A.H. Wisconsin.
