 Join the world’s largest three-legged race!

We’re not afraid to set our goals high and that’s exactly what we've done. We are attempting to create the world's largest virtual three-legged challenge to raise awareness of Parkinson’s. But we need your help!

On 17-18 October, we're asking people from all across the globe to don their leg tie and race at least 200metres. To smash the previous record we need over 768 pairs! And that’s where you come in. Pick your three-legged partner, put on your leg tie and join in from wherever you are - complying with your local social distancing guidelines. 

You'll be part of something exciting, uniting people from all over the world, all helping to raise awareness for Parkinson’s over one single weekend. You’ll be a true Three-Legged hero!

"Those who know me, will know that I have never let my Parkinson’s hold me back. In fact, it’s spurred me on to do more, setting myself bigger, better challenges each year.

I wanted to create the world largest Three-Legged Challenge because it's fun for everyone to take part in but also to do something unique to bring everyone together to raise awareness of Parkinson's.

I will be showing my support, along with my Three-Legged partner, Andy Tucker, by doing my own official Guiness World Record - the longest Three-Legged race in 24hours, which is 116KM! Knowing that everyone is uniting do their own Three-Legged Race for Parkinson's will keep us going throughout the day and night."
