Guinness World Record for longest game of touch rugby to be attempted

The Guinness World Record for the longest game of touch rugby league will attempted on September 6 (7pm).

The attempt will be to play touch rugby for 48 hours straight and it will be carried out by 28 men in aid of two local charities – P.A.U.L for brain recovery and Hull 4 Heroes.

The aim of the “Battle of Heart and Mind” round is to raise £20,000 to split between the two charities and to support the work they continue to do within the local community.

This is the second time the team will attempt to break the world record after their first attempt last year, falling short by just 71 seconds in 2018. Despite missing out on the world record, they still raised over £20,000 for Andy’s Man Club and the Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund.

Hull Universities will once again host the event on their artificial pitches and during the weekend, there will be support of the territorial army who are setting up a “players village”. They will be running a fully operational field kitchen form the university for the duration, providing food to players, volunteers and supporters.
