To celebrate National Hugging Day on 21 January, London is aiming to break theGuinness World Records title for the world’s longest marathon hug. This ‘Welcome to 2012’ hug from the capital launches World Record London – a 6 month campaign which will aim to make London a multi record-breaking city in a momentous year for the capital.
Hopeful record-breakers will gather at London’s St Pancras station at 7am on Thursday 19 January to begin the record, adjudicated by Guinness World Records – the universal authority on record-breaking achievement.
Huggers will be required to hug for more than 24 hours and 34 minutes to take the coveted title, ending after 7:35am on Friday 20 January.
Applications are open for budding record-breakers who’d like to kick start 2012 in London as Guinness World Record holders. Entries are also being taken from entertainers to keep the huggers going through their 24 hour marathon – singing, dancing, joke-telling or simply cheering them on.
To help London break the Guinness World Record for the world’s Longest hug visit www.worldrecordhug.com. Register to be a record-breaker, an entertainer or simply cheer on the huggers and support London.
