Three Legged Race – World Record

You may have heard that Cootehill Celtic Hurling are organising a Nationwide Sports Fundraising event on Saturday 4th May starting at 11:30am. They are attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the largest 3 legged race and they need as many clubs as possible to take part on the day.

At a recent committee meeting we decided to be a part of it and promote this event. The race will take place on participating club grounds throughout the country on Saturday 4th May at 11:30am. The host clubs will raise money by asking participants in the race to sell sponsorship cards with five lines on each card.

Cootehill Celtic Hurling will look for one line from each participant’s sponsorship card. This will cover their costs and help them raise funds for their club. We, Rockcorry GAA, would keep the other four lines on every card sold. All we have to do is get juvenile players, their friends, senior players, club members and indeed anyone within the community that wants to take part in the event to sell five lines at €3.00 each and the club raises money and at the end of the day you will be part of a World Record.

It will be a Guinness Book of Records event and when successful, we will break an official Guinness World Record and there will be a Certificate for every participant confirming that they have broken a World Record.  This event is open to all sports clubs; GAA, Soccer, Rugby, Athletics, Boxing, Cycling, Martial Arts, Cricket, Basketball, Fishing, Hunting & Shooting, Swimming, Tug’o’War, Golf, Equestrian, Walking, etc.

Full details of the event and contact details are available at If you are interested in taking part then please get in touch.
