Race Details:

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.
