World Record Attempt In Burntwood

Lichfield events company KP Events are staging a World record attempt; the Virgin Active World’s shortest Superhero ‘fun run’ on Monday 25th August 2014 from 10am,  to raise money for the charity We Love Lichfield.

The fun run is around the UK’s smallest park – Princes Park off Church Road and Farewell Lane in Burntwood, and follows on from the hugely successful initial Worlds Shortest Fun Run held round the same venue last May

It will only take approx 55 strides to get around Princes Park, in approximately 25 seconds; and everyone who takes part will be a record holder, once it’s verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Everyone taking part of any age any ability must dress up as a superhero of some shape or form and prizes are on offer in two ‘best of categories, firstly:

BEST EXISTING SUPERHERO, the best costume worn for a Batman Superwoman or other existing superhero OR

BEST ORIGINAL SUPERHERO, the best costume for a newly named new original superhero created by the person wearing the costume.

Virgin Active will select the two winners on the morning of the event.

You can register by emailing so KP Events can allocate a time slot to run your lap in.
