    World Record Attempt

    Longest Marathon on a Swing @ Loch Leven’s Larder 14th & 15th May 2022

    1. Any standard commercially available swing, such as would be found in a playground or similar, may be used for the attempt.

    2. The swing must be swinging all the time (apart from during rest breaks). The swing must be visibly in motion.

    3. Only the person attempting the record may cause the swing to move. It is not permitted to have another person pushing the swing or to otherwise make it move, nor may any artificial means be used to make the swing move.

    4. If desired, the swing may be low enough for the contestant’s feet to touch the ground and, in this case, the feet may also be used to help propel the swing.

    5. The contestant may eat and/or drink while the swing is in motion if they wish.

    6. One swing must be used throughout the attempt and if the swing or the rope/chain holding it breaks, the attempt is ended.

    7. Rest breaks are permitted during the attempt. A break of 5 minutes rest for every continuously completed hour of activity is allowed. These can be accumulated to give, for example, 20 minutes worth of rest time after 4 hours of activity.

    The Rotary Club of Kinross & District are supporting Associate Member, Richard Scott, in his attempt to break this world record. In recognition of this support Richard is pleased to align his record attempt with the Rotary worldwide response to Covid-19

    Rotary worldwide is taking action in response to the pandemic as clubs support COVID-19 vaccination and continued prevention efforts around the world. Tapping into decades of experience in bringing polio to the brink of eradication, Rotary members worldwide are helping health authorities communicate lifesaving information about COVID-19 and vaccination, combatting misinformation, supporting fair and equal access to vaccines, and curbing the spread of the virus by donating protective gear and other supplies to clinics and hospitals that are under strain.
