Sheffield University Orienteering Club World Record Attempt

Team photo

Thanks for visiting our just giving page please take a moment to read through our aim.

Some say Usain Bolt's world record that stands at 9.58 is the most impressive feat in athletics history but the members of Sheffield University Orienteering Club (ShUOC) like to push the boundaries of human endevour beyond that previously thought possible.

This year we will attempt to go where no camel has gone before and break the world record for the fastest two person pantomime fancy dress costume to ever run a half marathon in the 4 billion year history of planet earth. 

The record will be attempted on the 27th May 2012 at the Sheffield Half Marathon. 

The current record is detailed here:

We hope to have a fleet of camels and other exotic animals on the start line - recent reports suggest a lion will be in attendence. 

Our efforts will be focussed on raising money for Leukamia and Lymphoma research and Unicef. 

Unfortunately Just Giving do not allow us to split the money on one page equally between the two charities. Please choose yourself which charity you would like to donate to or split your sponorship between the charities. 

The two pages below tell you a bit more about the two charities, why we chose them and how to donate.

Any donations are welcome no matter how small they are! We understand that people may not wish to give money until we have successfully broke the world record.

Current Participants:

- John Rocke and Ralph Street (Camel)

- Dave Schorah and Dave Abrams (Camel)

- Robert Gardner (Tiger TBC)

- Kris Jones (Sheikh)

- Alex Moore

- Anna Douglas

- Camilla Chilvers
