A succinct series expression is derived for describing the limit distribution of the number of timesr consecutive elements are all records (in a sequence of independent a identically distributed random variables with a common continuous distribution) for all r ≥ 2. Previously, only the limit distributions for r = 1, 2, and3 were known.
