The fastest marathons by a married couple on the North and South Poles (aggregate) was 34 hr 55 min 08 sec by Krishna Chigurupati and Uma Chigurupati (both India) who ran the Antarctic Ice Marathon together on 15 December 2010 and the North Pole Marathon on 8 April 2011. Krishna, the husband, finished the Antarctic in 8 hr 27 min 26 sec, while Uma completed the race in 8 hr 16 min 22 sec. The couple completed the North Pole together in a time of 9 hr 11 min 20 sec.
