Amy Hughes set out to break the Guiness World Record for the most amount of miles on a Treadmill.  The record attempt took place in Manchesters Trafford Centre in front of a crowd each day as well as key milestones filmed and logs kept throughout the challenge.  In total she ran 521 mile in 7 days, the previous record* was 517.63 miles (set in 2011).  

Amy submitted the evidence to GWR for verification however she was refused as one of the independent witnesses was someone related to her however there were many that were not.  The whole running community believes this to be morally wrong after the blood, sweat and tears that went into attempting the GWR.


We call on GWR to ratify this attempt by Amy Hughes and work with her to satisfy the requirements to have her GWR attempt recognised.
