The fasted marathon times are held by men. The same holds for triathlons over the Ironman distance. But, if you’re honest, these things are for wusses.

Go to 5x or even 10x Ironman distances (38 km of swimming, 1800 of cycling, 421 of running) and they are all dominated by the same woman: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrid_Ben%C3%B6hr

Astrid, you’re my new hero.  🙂
