Farmer Kalaczynski began his odyssey on 15 August 2014, and every day since he has completed a run of about 42 kilometres.
Thursday's marathon saw the runner pass through Witunia near Bydgoscz, northern Poland.
As usual, the indefatigable star was joined by other runners, who provided moral support on Kalaczynski's 140 marathon in as many days.
Kalaczynski hopes to complete his epic challenge on 15 August 2015.
The runner's progress can be followed on his official Facebook page. (nh)
