On 7-9 October, my brother, Seamus Singh, and I will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Squash Marathon (singles) at Workout Harbourside on the Welshback in Bristol. The official current record stands at just over 38 hours. Last weekend a couple of gents in Tring attempted to set a new record and went 40 hours 1 min and 59 secs which now needs to be ratified. Our goal is and has been since we started on this adventure a whopping 50 hours!
This attempt is a huge undertaking; we would love your support!
Through this attempt, we hope to raise awareness about the importance of mental health, which is why we’re raising money for Off the Record (Bristol) (https://www.otrbristol.org.uk) and Jigsaw – The National Center for Youth Metal Health (Dublin) (https://jigsaw.ie), two amazing charities that provide mental health support and advocacy for young people.
Mental health is so much about community, so we really want to bring our community together through this attempt, which is why we’ll be hosting a weekend-long event at Workout Harbourside in Bristol, UK surrounding our attempt.
Here’s how you can support us:
