A Guinness World Record has been broken – the farthest distance travelled by walking barefoot on LEGO bricks by a relay team in one hour.
The ultimate LEGO barefoot walking champions have been crowned, with a team of five achieving the Guinness World Record for the farthest distance travelled by walking barefoot on LEGO bricks by a relay team in one hour.
“One of my goals for this year was to set a world record, and knowing the importance of community, I knew I wanted to attempt it with other moms,” said Katie Wells, who got the LEGO walking crew together. “How many of us (moms) have had the experience of a LEGO to the foot while walking across a room in the middle of the night to get a fussy baby, or while running across the house to answer the door or check the oven?”
She was joined by friends Ashley, Savanna, Grace and Cat, who made their attempt to break the record on October 10 in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, USA. Each team member walked approximately 12 minutes to cover at least 20 laps per person, as required by official record guidelines.
The children of the team helped out be refilling the brick trays as LEGO pieces went flying everywhere.
Once the hour was up, the team had covered 328 laps – 3.28 km – and broken the Guinness World Record.
