We realised this week that we hadn’t formally updated everyone on the records distances and other highlights from the EPIC48 World Record Weekend in Guernsey.

First of all, and most importantly, our fund-raising figure is currently at £27,000.

An amazing effort and donations are still coming in and with 8 treadmills to sell and a luxury bed raffle, we’re aiming to break through £40,000 in the next few weeks.
It was such an incredible weekend, we still can’t believe the atmosphere in the final couple of hours, and especially the last 30 minutes, it was a real party atmosphere.
We’ve outlined the individual distances, World Records, GB Records and other highlights from the weekend.
