Don’t miss your chance to become a world record holder

Have you ever wanted to be a Guinness World Record holder? Perhaps you reckon you and a friend could become the fastest three-legged marathon runners or the fastest nuns on a marathon run?    

Let’s face it – most of us will never have the ability to break the actual marathon world record, but you could become the fastest marathon runner in a fancy-dress costume of your choice! 

Raise more money for charity

Every year, runners in the Virgin Money London Marathon have the opportunity to become official record holders, thanks to our partnership with the Guinness World Records.
