Looking to become World Record Setters, WR Seniors looked through the Guinness Book of World Records. The previous record for number of people racing barefoot was 380 and that was the number the Junior Blues were looking to break.
At lunch time the participants all signed in first before removing their shoes and socks. In order to break the record, they went back in to the lunch room to find the numbers they needed to break the record.
The starting pistol fired as 415 sets of bare feet broke the record...that is when it is confirmed by Guinness.
