The official answer according to the Guinness World Records organisation is… well…uh… no one cares.
So that’s it then, our chance to
be fame hungry attention seeking individuals promote our charity will go without the meaningful accolade of a world record…
Well perhaps not all is lost… because some web research has revealed a website called alternative world records http://www.alternativerecords.co.uk/where you can submit your record and if verified will be featured in our book which is available to purchase.Yes, to have a record ranked alongside “The longest gum wrapper chain” or “The longest strawberry cake” would be an amazing achievement! Well, perhaps not then.
Let’s fast forward to the 22nd April 2012 when you’re watching the Virgin London Marathon on TV and you hear about the next world record attempt for the “Fastest Marathon dressed up as a chicken or dressed up as a trifle or something” then spare a thought for the poor old Batman & Robin who a month earlier ran nearly 4 times the distance non stop in the Thames Path run and whilst thinking about it, perhaps you spare a few quid for our charity www.justgiving.com/runsuperherorun
