AT least one official Guinness World Record was set in Dublin yesterday, and it was a pretty scary one.

"I feel like you look!" said one exhausted finisher as he passed Sean McShane (40), who looked particularly disgusting thanks to some convincing facial prosthetics and a whole heap of fake blood.

"I've just completed the 'Fastest Marathon dressed as a Zombie'," explained the Belfast school caretaker, who runs with North Belfast Harriers.

"I had to apply to the Guinness World Records to do it. They gave me a time of three-and-a-half hours and I did it in 3:18 so it's official!"
