  Fastest 5,000-meter run with a 40-pound rucksack-world record set by Dustin McClure
  FORT BENNING, GA, USA -- Second Lt. Dustin McClure completed a 5,000-meter run with a 40-pound rucksack in 20.06 minutes-setting the new world record for the Fastest 5,000-meter run with a 40-pound rucksack.

   Photo: McClure made his run at Fort Benning, Ga., on Oct. 12 and came in at 20:06, as certified by his commanding officer and others.   (enlarge photo)   

  “I’m a big-time runner, and anything that has to do with physical endurance appeals to me,” said McClure, 28, who was an all-conference runner at Oklahoma State University before enlisting in the Army in September 2005.

   Breaking the record, he said, was “just a goal” and not meant to be a challenge to other soldiers, but he’s “sure somebody will try to break it just like I did.”

   “Anytime he goes to a race he intends to beat everyone there, and he usually does … he’s just very, very driven,” McClure’s wife, Rachael, said.

 The world record belonged to another soldier, Sgt. Jake Truex, who on Feb. 14, 2006, made the run in Hanau, Germany, clocking in at 22:20 and breaking the previous record of 25:15.
