Last week on the blog, we wrote about the new Marathon record —3,820 Type Races in 24 hours.

In a chat with him about that record,  ⦗𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐋⦘ ⦓☾✹✯𝚅𝚒𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚎✯✹☽⦔   (Viellain – TRData) promised that “I will do a marathon to end all marathons later in September.” For Vielle, “later in September” meant exactly one day after we announced the first record. On Sep. 9-10 Vielle beat the Marathon record again (daily competition results for 9/10) , achieving 4,892 races within 24 hours. See the record on TypeRacerData.com. 

In the TypeRacer Discord, he described his marathon as below budget and ahead of schedule. Congrats to ECOL/Vielle on setting what may really be a marathon that ends all marathons! Here’s what we know about the marathon:

  • It required staying up for 24 hours of continuous typing
  • It required skipping meals – he consumed only an energy drink between races.
  • There was only one bathroom break (post-energy drink).
  • His account was upgraded to Premium last week (as a congrats! gift), enabling him to squeeze out more races than he was last time with his basic account (i.e., he was able to save practice races or ghost races etc.)

[Update: A previous version of this article indicated that Vielle had eaten minimal snacks during the record-setting marathon — it’s been corrected to say “no food”.]

All Hail and Glory to the Empyrean Forces!

Congrats on an impressive marathon. The clan stuff is dumb tho, leave that for NT.

Noticed how my comment has been up for 3 days. And just within 6:00AM PST it suddenly gets 3 downvotes? Some*one* is salty.

Hmm if its only 2k to get a record maybe i should make one as well :3

Congratulations to Vielle! Mindblowing dedication he has.

Congrats Vielle — and please stop setting records faster than I can write blog posts.


You should keep on typing instead!
