Guinness World Record – 3 Legged Race

Pairc Naomh Mhuire was transformed into a hive of activity this morning, Saturday 4th May, because there was an amazing turnout of kids, their parents and even some grannies as they all gathered to take part in the Guinness World Record attempt for the largest 3-legged race.

Our club chairman, Jimmy McGeough was the official race starter and it got underway promptly at 11.30am and while most pairs sprinted down the field with considerable ease others seemed to find the going tough with co-ordination being a major problem but thankfully they managed to complete the 100 metres requirement and thereby achieving history and becoming a World Record holder.

Mark Daly, a member of An Garda Siochana, was our independent witness and after the race he presented participants with a certificate confirming that they successfully took part and completed the World’s largest 3-legged race and many thanks to Mark for his time.

On behalf of the club I would like to thank everybody who came out on the day to take part in the race and everyone who supported the event. You can all feel good about yourselves that you are now a Guinness World Record holder. Well done.
