2020 World’s Largest Flip Flop 1K Walk

Presented by Chatham Street Commerical

Registration is now open for the 6th annual World’s Largest Flip Flop 1K Walk Presented by Chatham Street Commercial! Although our Guinness World Record was broken, we will not be attempting to reclaim the record in 2020. To follow Guinness guidelines, it requires 2,000 to be in very proximity to line up all participants.

Instead, we will keep the annual tradition of the event alive and walk the 1K in flip flops while socially distancing.  This event is a fundraiser to sponsor children through the Wake County Holiday Cheer Program.

Registration & Race Details


  • Through August 12th – $20
  • August 13-15th – $25
  • Youth Registration (12 and under) – $15

Race Details:

UPDATE for 2020:  We will not be attempting to reclaim our Guinness World Record.  Instead we will be keeping alive the annual tradition of the event and walking the 1K while socially distancing.  We will NOT be lining people up in a corral to start the walk.

This is not your typical “race.”  There are guidelines we have to follow to submit to Guinness for our attempt to be verified as a new Guinness World Record.

Schedule of Events:

  • Once you arrive at Bond Brothers, you will pick up your bar code liability waiver at the table in front of Bond Brothers.  You will hand this form in to be scanned when you enter into the corral area.  Every participant will hand in their own form and is one of the ways we count participants.
  • 10:30am – Enter into the “corral area.”  This is a required step by Guinness and will be recorded for verification submission. Please arrive no later than 10:30am at Bond Brothers.  We highly encourage you to pick up your race bib/shirt at either Thursday or Friday packet pickup to help with lines on race morning.
  • 11am – all runners should be in the corral area.  Once all participants are in the corral area, a group photo will be taken and the 1K will start.

Guinness Guidelines:

  • Every participant must wear thong flip flops.  They can not adapted for the race in any way and may not have backs.
  • Everyone must complete the entire 1K in flip flops (run or walk).
  • Strollers are allowed in the race.
  • Dogs are not allowed to participate due to liability insurance.
