BOSTON (CBS) – Adam Scully-Power made history this weekend by becoming the first person to run the Pan-Mass Challenge course from Wellesley-to-Provincetown.

It took him 41 hours and 33 minutes.

He posted this message on Instagram Sunday:

“I thought you would like to know that I finished. I left Babson College at 5:45 am Friday & arrived in Provincetown 163 miles later at 11:18 pm on Saturday night. I had two simple goals: 1) to finish and 2) to raise critical funds so that the research can continue to find a cure for cancer. With the support, well-wishes and donations from so many people, we accomplished both. Please join me in sending best wishes to the nearly 5,500 cyclists who are making their way to Provincetown today for the cause!” Adam Scully-Power, ultra-marathoner

This was the longest run for Scully-Power, 39, who had previously run two 100-mile races.

Scully-Power, who’s from Florida, told WBZ-TV last week he was inspired to run as a tribute to the victims and survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings.

He hoped to raise $25,000 for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and reached that goal this weekend.
