Mario is a persistent chap isn’t he? He ventures endlessly in order to save the forever imprisoned Princess Peach, who strangely manages to end up confined in Bowser’s evil lair on a regular basis, it makes you wonder where he gets the motivation from.
All of this aside, though, have you ever wondered just how far he actually goes to rescue her? Wonder no more. A very clever man (or obsessed, take your pick) over at Mental_Floss has worked out the number of miles that Mario runs (er, and swims) in Super Mario Bros.
The actual total probably isn’t what you’d expect. Nick estimates that the amount is around 3.7 miles with running and swimming combined. Bet you never thought you were completing a 5K sprint during your Super Mario Bros. days eh?
