Los Cerritos Center and National Geographic Kids Magazine Set Out to Break TWO Guinness World Records® Titles for Running AND Recycling

Local Los Cerritos Center in Cerritos, CA to hold run and shoe collection

Cerritos-based Los Cerritos Center will help National Geographic Kids magazine set TWO Guinness World Records® titles: Most people to run 100 meters in 24 hours AND the longest chain of shoes. (They’ll be recycled into athletic surfaces). To break the record, more than 5,000 people worldwide need to run 100 meters between noon ET October 26, 2012, and noon ET October 27, 2012, and more than 25,000 shoes will need to be collected and sent to National Geographic Society headquarters by November 9, 2012. Visit kids.nationalgeographic.com/run-for-the-planet/ for official rules, additional locations, and other information.

The initiative—called Run for the Planet—inspires kids and families to do something good for their health and the environment. Run for the Planet supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign, which encourages people to get healthy and active.

National Geographic Kids magazine encourages kids and families to get teams, classmates, organizations and communities to join them in setting the magazine’s sixth and seventh Guinness World Records. People can also take a pledge to run on the National Geographic Kids website: kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/run-for-the-planet/
