Guinness World Records Day
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Day (GWR Day) is an annual celebration of record-breaking, a day which sees thousands of people around the world come together with one common goal, to become a title holder.
First held in 2004 to mark Guinness World Records becoming the best-selling copyright book of all time, GWR Day is now a much-anticipated event each year that has inspired some now iconic record-breaking achievements. So whether you have a desire for adrenaline, knowledge or finding your limits, we’re encouraging everyone to take part. This year's event takes place on Thursday 14 November.
Spirit of Adventure
This year's theme, Spirit of Adventure (which is also a chapter in Guinness World Records 2020), is central to us at GWR and is something shared among many of our iconic record holders, from round-the-world cyclists, to mountaineers and ultra-marathon runners. However, we realise everyone’s adventure is different. No matter where in the world you are or what you want to do - if you want to take on a new challenge, fulfil that desire for adrenaline or perfect your skills - attempt a record on GWR Day 2019!
