The 5K World Record was recently broken by Joshua Cheptegei with a finishing time of 12 minutes and 36 seconds at the Monaco Run 5K. Now it’s time for BCRR’s own world record attempt! For the Labor Day World Record “5K” each participant must run for 12 minutes and 36 seconds on a track or using a GPS tracker to determine the distance. The winner of the virtual event will be determined by the participant who ran the farthest distance in the allotted time. If anyone submits a distance over 5 km we’ll call Guinness. Entries should be submitted via the data form below. Good luck and Godspeed!!!
How to participate:
Run for precisely 12 minutes 36 seconds.
Record with GPS tracker or run on a track with a stop watch.
