Friday, August 9th, will see Limavady attempt to put its name in the history books with a fitness related world record attempt, but the North West town needs your help.

As part of the ‘Limavady 400’ celebrations, the challenge is to have the most people in one venue perform push ups for a period of one minute at 5pm, outside the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre. The current world record is 352, achieved by Laboratorios Silanes S.A. de C.V. (Mexico) on 20 October 2012.

An attempt will be made to draw at least 400 people to the Limavady event.

“We wanted to target a record that tied in with our 400th birthday celebrations, so this works well,” said Council’s Limavady 400 events coordinator Andy Chapman, who said a live video link with a gym in New Zealand, who will complete the same challenge 12,000 miles away.

“You have three weeks so, get practicing,” he added.
