OUR 2016 RECORD- 805 runners

CURRENT WORLD RECORD- 845 runners (Spain)

Join us as we attempt to take back our Guinness World Record for the Largest Flip Flop Run/Walk!  Last year we broke our own record with 805 runners and a group in Spain just broke our record with 845 people.  Get your friends and family and help us take back our record!  We will start entering the corral area at 10:30am and the run will start at 11am.  Please make sure you are at Bond Brothers by 10:30am!

NEW to 2017, Guinness is NOT requiring every 50 runners to wear a different color shirt!  This will greatly speed up the process of corraling the runners.

  • $160 for group of 10
