World Record Attempt

On St. Patrick’s Day (Sunday, March 17, 2019) we will attempt to set the world record for the Largest Kilt Race…

Thank you for joining us in our quest to set the world record for the Largest Kilt Race! With race day quickly approaching we want to review some of the guidelines we must complete in order to set this record:

The first 2,000 people to register will receive a qualifying kilt and a green bib to to be part of the record attempt. You will receive your kilt and green bib when you pick up your packet at one of the early packet pickups during race week or on race day. We do STRONGLY urge that you pick up your packet early to ease your experience on race day. Locations and times can be found HERE.

There will be a chip on the back of the green bib that you receive. This will be our proof that you were part of the record attempt. Please do not remove or bend this chip.

After receiving your kilt and green bib please try and keep it in good condition. The Guinness World Records team is very specific on how the kilt will be presented on race day.

Please have your qualifying kilt and green bib on when you arrive to the race site. You will need to have your kilt checked before you enter the world record corral on race day. The world record corral will be clearly marked near the start line. There will be official volunteer stewards in orange t-shirts who will allow you to enter the corral after reviewing the kilt and bib. Your bib number MUST be on your outer most layer to enter the coral and during the entire race.

The world record corral will open at 8:15 am and close at 8:55am. Only those who are wearing an eligible kilt, green bib and have been checked by a Guinness World Records steward will be able to enter through the gates. If you are not in the corral before 8:55 am you will not be eligible to participate in the record attempt but you will be able to run the non-record attempt race shortly after 9:00am.

WE ARE HOPING TO HAVE THE WORLD RECORD PRESENTATION START AROUND 10:15AM!

For those of you who are participating in the race but will not be wearing a kilt, we ask that you wait outside of the corrals. You will begin the race as soon as those in world record attempt have cleared the starting line.

In order for us to set this world record we need 60+ stewards. These stewards will be in charge of checking in each participant and making sure they have met all Guinness World Records guidelines. They will also be responsible for monitoring the world record attempt participants throughout the course. If you are interested in being steward, please contact Adam Petrovic at apetrovic@hermescleveland.com Please provide you name, age, phone number, email and t-shirt size. Must be at least 21 years old.
