KP Events are staging a second world record attempt the Virgin Active World’s shortest ‘fun run’ on Monday 2 May 2016 from 10am, to raise money for the charity We Love Lichfield Fund. The event is sponsored by Virgin Active – health clubs, gyms, spas and tennis.
The fun run is around the UK’s smallest park – Prince's Park off Church Road and Farewell Lane in Burntwood. There are lots of definitions of a park, but in essence it must be a fenced open space, not adjoined to a building and be solely used for recreation.
It will only take approx 55 strides to get around Princes Park, in approximately 25 seconds and everyone who takes part will be a record holder, once it’s verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
