Guinness World Records

Guinness World Records (GWR), the global authority on record-breaking achievement, celebrated its 10th year as an official partner of the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2017, making this already extraordinary event even more memorable by providing record-breaking hopefuls with on-the-day record verification.

Please note that you must have secured a guaranteed place in the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon if you wished to attempt a Guinness World Record. Guaranteed entries are not available from Guinness World Records.

Not only is an official Guinness World Records attempt a great way of enhancing your Virgin Money London Marathon experience, it is also a fantastic means of raising awareness and money for your chosen charity. GWR’s verifications services are usually a paid-for-service but, for this day only, the verification is done free of charge for runners.

Please visit the Guinness World Records website for more information.

As part of the submission process a full description of each applicant's planned record attempt will be sent to the London Marathon Operations Department by GWR.

The attempt will then be assessed to ensure it is appropriate for the Virgin Money London Marathon.

London Marathon Events Limited reserves the right to deny entry into the Virgin Money London Marathon if the costume is deemed to contravene health and safety regulations. All applicants approved for on-the-day ratification will be moved to the Green Start by London Marathon Events Limited.
