Spending time indoors doesn’t mean you have to be bored. In fact, with the extra time, you can aspire to do great things, including becoming a Guinness World Records titles holder!

With the ongoing changes around the globe, we want everyone to be inspired, have fun, and reach their fullest potential.

That’s why we’re offering online users the opportunity to become record holders right from their very own homes!

We’re pleased to bring you the #GWRChallenge, a weekly record challenge we will be hosting across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. This fun challenge will lead to a new title holder every week.

Participants can try their hand at the challenges that switch week to week, and all they have to do is follow a simple set of rules for each record!

The guidelines will be posted here, as well as our social channels, as they change each week, as a reference for anyone who needs them.

And the best part? All attempts utilize household materials, making this an exciting and accessible record-breaking experience for anyone who wants to try!

There are a few things you can do to ensure your attempt gets recognized and help us verify your record!

1. One-take videos, no edits or cuts please!
2. Be sure to follow ALL rules
3. Tag our account and use our hashtag
4. Call out the number or score you’ve achieved in your caption

Every Friday, the #GWRChallenge will conclude and we will announce the record holder at the end of the week.

On Fridays, we will then declare the newest #GWRChallenge for you to try at home!

We’re excited to see your best submissions and can’t wait to see who will become Officially Amazing™!


Challenge 7 - Most leapfrog jumps in 30 seconds by a team of two (online)

Our seventh #GWRchallenge will test your teamwork and athleticism.

Please share your video before 10am GMT on Thursday 21 May.

The guidelines are as follows:

1. For this record, you will need another member of your household!
2. In case you're unfamiliar with leapfrog: for the purpose of this record, leapfrog is a game in which players take turns in vaulting with parted legs over another player who is bending down.
3. The team must take their positions for leaping: the person who will be the second in turn to jump must bend over and the person who will be the first to jump must stand behind their partner.
4. The person leaping must have both feet leaving the ground simultaneously. They must place both hands on the back of their partner at the same time. The legs must be astride and the frog must not put their hands or knees on the ground.
5. The two participants must alternate being the frog.
6. You can jump over the length of the back of your partner and over their head, or you can jump over them from a sideways direction. The choice is yours!
7. If any jumps are not technically correct (i.e. if either participant falls, touches their hands or knees on the ground), they will be deducted from the total.

Challenge 6 - Fastest time to put on 10 t-shirts (online)

2. The cards must be laid on and positioned over the edge of a single flat surface, side by side.
3. The cards must be at least one cards-width apart. If we think they're too close, your attempt will not count!

3. Make sure the toilet roll remains in the air between touches and if it hits the floor, a wall, a chair or anything else during the attempt the attempt ends.
4. Please use the toilet roll after the attempt and don’t let it go to waste (they're a precious commodity!)
