Guinness World Records
Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking achievement, is partnered with the Virgin Money London Marathon to provide runners with record verification on the day of the race.
An official Guinness World Records attempt is a great way of enhancing your Virgin Money London Marathon experience, as well as potentially raising awareness and money for your chosen charity.
