Don't have a partner? Why not challenge your friends http://www.threeleggedrace.co.uk/challenger.php
Heaton Park is an ideal choice of location for this record breaking challenge; with beautiful wide open spaces and plenty of attractions we're certain your record breaking challenge will be a day to remember.
The park has fantastic transport links so no matter where your coming from finding the event couldn't be easier. If your driving coming off the m60 at junction nineteen and on to Middleton Road will lead you directly the Smithy Lodge Entrance. If your coming by train taking the bury tram from Manchester Victoria station and alighting from the Heaton Park stop will drop you a short distance from the Station Gate Entrance.
"The World's Largest Three Legged Race in one location" is a great way to support charity whilst achieving your own Guinness World Record.
The charity Speed Of Sight are no strangers to world records, as their very own CEO who is blind has achieved Eight world records to date. This time we thought we'd get the whole community involved to have a lot of fun whilst raising awareness of disability.
Speed Of Sight does not receive any government funding. We are completely reliant on the kind support of the general public and corporate partnerships.
This is a fantastic opportunity for those involved to have fun and socially interact with other like-minded people, friends, family or colleagues. If you work for a company it also an excellent way for businesses, however large or small, to get involved by entering teams demonstrating great Corporate Social Responsibility.
Speed Of Sight work with disabled people all over the country, giving them the opportunity to drive themselves in a specially adapted vehicle around a race track of off-road course. Driving is an activity so many people take for granted but when you have a disability at an early age and are told you will never drive, or develop a disability later in life and have your licence taken away, it is a very distressing situation. By coming for a Speed Of Sight experience, people are shown that they can do the things others take for granted and experience a huge boost to their self esteem and confidence.
