We are attempting to set three records for The Longest (In duration) Continuous Running Event, The Longest Distance Hand Delivered Message and the Longest Game of Chinese Whispers.
The World Record Message (please note parkrun is referenced)
You can't break The World's Greatest Distance Hand Delivered Message without something to say.
Inside the Great British Relay Baton is the message we are taking around the country.
It covers parkrun, the Olympics but we can’t tell you exactly what the message is because it has to be sealed in the baton and only revealed at the end of the relay.
The key points are below...
- Congratulations to all the runners, clubs and running groups who have helped secure the Longest Distance Hand Delivered Message Record.
- The Great British Relay’s best wishes of good luck to all sportspeople taking part in the great events over summer (Olympics, Euro 2016 etc)
- The importance of community running events encouraging healthy lifestyles to battle obesity, diabetes and other conditions worsened by inactivity
- The Great British Relay’s support of the idea that, like the NHS, parkrun should remain free to all participants at the point of use!!
