The parkrun world record is held by Olympian and Running Channel presenter 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….?
A group of runners from South Africa 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 you know – genuine parkrunners from your local parkrun should be used!
