Rat Race's 'Dirty Weekend' obstacle event on 8 May is inviting participants, supporters, and local residents to strip off for their 'Dirty Undies' challenge. The challenge will see them attempt to break the world record for the largest gathering of people in their underwear.
Strip Off For Dirty Weekend
Attendees will be invited to rip off their clothes for a short 1k run/jog/walk from the ‘Big Top Tent’ marquee to Burghley House, in return for a free beer and the opportunity to secure a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. The record currently stands at 2,270, which was achieved in 2011 at the ‘Utah Undie Run’ in the USA.
All men who take part must wear nothing but underpants but women are allowed to wear either a shirt or bra with their knickers.
Jim Mee, Rat Race MD and creator of the Dirty Weekend said of the world record attempt; “On the Friday evening, we would like to invite competitors, their supporters and local residents to come and join us in our attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people gathered together in their underwear. We need over 2,270 people to break the record, but of course the more the merrier."
He added; "Don't worry about it being 'nippy' when you finish, as at the end we'll gather everyone in the heated big top tent. Everyone who gets their kit off will be rewarded with a free beer, so here's hoping we can all raise a pint to a roomful of record breakers."
