Guinness World Records Day

GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Day (GWR Day) is an annual celebration of record-breaking, a day which sees thousands of people around the world come together with one common goal, to become a title holder.

First held in 2004 to mark Guinness World Records becoming the best-selling copyright book of all time, GWR Day is now a much-anticipated event each year that has inspired some iconic record-breaking achievements. So whether you have a desire for adrenaline, knowledge or finding your limits, we’re encouraging everyone to take part. 

Stay tuned for more information about this year's event.

GWR Day 2019

Last year's theme, Spirit of Adventure (which is also a chapter in Guinness World Records 2020), is central to us at GWR and is something shared among many of our iconic record holders, from round-the-world cyclists, to mountaineers and ultra-marathon runners. But adventure isn't something that's always defined by distance or endurance; everyone's adventure is different. Read about the people from around the globe that set records for GWR Day 2019 in the articles above.
