Guinness World Record Attempt on 7th June 2014 – Most Amount of Burpees in 12 Hours

Number two on My Exercise Bucket List was to set a Guinness World Record – so here goes.

What am I going to do?  Set a Guinness World Record for the most amount of Burpees in 12 hours.  5000 is the record that I have to beat, but I am aiming for a few more than that!

For those of you wondering what a burpee is, please have a look at this video that was put together by my boss in support of the World Record attempt.  It’s quite funny and shows most of the crew doing a burpee, along with some cool soundbites.

Alternatively, you could look at one of my previous posts about Burpees.

When?  On 7th June 2014, starting at 08:30 and finishing 12 hours later at 20:30  (pretty crazy huh?).


On the Airey Neave Recreation Ground in Watchfield, Oxfordshire.  (Postcode SN6 8TZ will take you to the area).  To add to the excitement, the Watchfield Village Fete will be happening at this location too, starting at midday.

Why?  Why not?  It’s on my Bucket List and could raise a bit of money for a charity close to my heart and the local community.  If you are interested in giving a donation, please visit my Just Giving page.


My daughter will be responsible for keeping you up to date on my progress throughout the day via Twitter.  You can follow my progress and send me encouragement by following me on Twitter (there is a link at the bottom left of this page).

Want to support me?  

There are a number of options:

1.  Give a donation to charity by visiting my Just Giving page.  I am raising money for a great charity called Young Epilepsy, which creates better futures for young people, supports their families and promotes awareness.  To make it even easier, if you live in the UK, you can also donate by text by sending:  EXER80 £(the amount you wish to donate) to 70070

2.  Follow me on Twitter (link bottom left of this page) and tweet your support throughout the day.

3.  Turn up in Watchfield, anytime between 08:30 and 20:30 and give your support.  Postcode is SN6 8TZ.  There is a village fete going on between 12:00 and 17:00, so that may be a reason to visit too.
