Currently, no one holds the record, but Webb will need to complete the race in under four hours to win the title.

TribLive reports that Webb is no rookie at marathons, with more than 100 races under her belt.

Following the race, Webb will need to submit an evidence package to Guinness in order for officials to decide whether she successfully set the records. It will take up to 15 weeks for the results to come back.
