Runners to attempt Guinness World Record at Limestone Park

THIS Saturday the Ipswich parkrun group will meet at Limestone Park to attempt to break a Guinness World Record for International parkrun day.

The Ipswich group will be part of a global effort of 422 groups trying to break the record for most participants in a 5km run across multiple locations.

The event is free and starts at 7am at Bill Paterson Oval and is run within Limestone. Everyone is welcome regardless of age or fitness level.

Event director Rochelle Vaisanen said people were welcome to bring some food or a drink for after the event.

"It's 'bring a mate and a plate' so if they want to stay and have some food afterwards we're just asking people to bring something small and we have a coffee van that comes every Saturday as well so you can have a coffee after your run or walk." Ms Vaisanen said.

Go to parkrun.com.au for information or to register for the run.
