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 now iconic record-breaking achievements. So whether you have a desire for adrenaline, knowledge or finding your limits, we’re encouraging everyone to take part. This year's event takes place on Thursday 14 November.
Watch the real-life Iron Man in action
Witness record-breaking in action on Guinness World Records Day at Brighton Pier (UK). Gravity Industries, supported by Xperience Days, will be attempting the record for the fastest speed in a body controlled jet engine powered suit (wind-guided). Watch real-life Iron Man Richard Browning take to the skies and attempt to break his existing record at 8 a.m. GMT on Thursday 14 November*, and see others from the Gravity Team show off their space age jet suits throughout the morning!
*The date and time of the attempt and events are subject to change. Updates will be shared via Twitter at @GWR.
Spirit of Adventure
This 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. However, we realise everyone’s adventure is different. No matter where in the world you are or what you want to do - if you want to take on a new challenge, fulfil that desire for adrenaline or perfect your skills - attempt a record on GWR Day 2019!
Here is some record inspiration to help you find your spirit of adventure
Spirit of Adventure doesn't mean going on an actual journey. It can also be about pushing yourself to attempt something that tests your physical or mental ability, and any record attempt like that involves a journey to become ready for the challenge that awaits
Why not build or make something? While you don't have to do something as complicated as the world's fastest pram, why not have a go at making something that can become a record holder? Whether it be a vehicle, a piece of art or something really big or small
Do you think you can do something in the fastest time? Do you have patience and determination to practice? This year's GWR day is about going on that journey to push yourself, discover what you are capable of and attempt a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title
Nobody says you have to attempt a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title by yourself. If you and your friends have a burning desire to become record holders, then attempt a record in a team and together you can become OFFICIALLY AMAZING!
