The parkrun world record is held by Olympian Andy Baddeley, who ran the Bushy Park parkrun in a time of 13 minutes 48 seconds. That record has stood since the 11th August 2012, until now….?
We’ve been speaking to a group of runners from South Africa, who set out to beat Andy’s record…as a relay team. But can they do it? Watch and find out!
Please note, if you are going to attempt this, please don’t do it on actual parkrun day when others are trying to run. It’s not safe! Go and do it on a different day when the course is clear.
And, as they mentioned, don’t just recruit a bunch of the fastest runners know – genuine parkrunners from your local parkrun should be used!
Well done to the guys for doing their parkrun relay at Bryanston parkrun, just outside of Johannesberg.
