Guinness World Records Day 2020

Today is Guinness World Records Day!

Have you ever attempted, set or broken a Guinness World Record?

I've been a part of a few mass participation Guinness World Record attempts and tried some individual challenges too.

In 2009 I attempted the Guinness World Record for the 'Most Brussels Sprouts Eaten in a Minute'. That was my favourite so far.

Emily and I actually helped set a Guinness World Record in May of 2009. That was for 'The Largest Picnic across multiple venues'. Over 8,300 people took park in that effort.

We also helped break the Guinness World Record of 'Largest Gathering of People Wearing Boater Hats' while we lived in Luton back in 2014.

Mad Hatters!

Guinness World Record Attempts to date:
  • 2014 - 'Largest Gathering of People Wearing Boater Hats' - Achieved
  • 2012 - 'Fastest 400m Relay Hop' - Unsuccessful
  • 2012 - 'Largest Group Hop' - Unsuccessful
  • 2011 - 'The most people to ‘High Five’ simultaneously' - Unsuccessful
  • 2010 - 'The UK's longest Conga line' - Unsuccessful
  • 2009 - 'Most Brussels Sprouts Eaten in a Minute' - Unsuccessful
  • 2009 - 'The Largest Picnic across multiple venues' - Achieved

It's been a few years since our last Guinness World Record attempt. What shall we try for next?
