ST EWE Free Range Eggs have achieved Guinness World Records for a Charity Egg and Spoon race along the Cornish Coast Path.
The team took on the 300-mile challenge to raise money for both Hospitality Action and the Cornwall Air Ambulance Service.
According to the official record held by Guinness World Records, participants from St Ewe’s Free-Range Eggs achieved the greatest distance to carry an egg in one week – 158.9 miles.
It adds that “a fresh, uncooked, and untreated commercially available hen’s egg” was “carried in a specialist container designed and approved specifically for this attempt”.
The team finished their challenge on 7 July and a Guinness World Record official adjudicator confirmed the achievement on 30 July at the Rock Oyster Festival.
Bex Tonks, CEO of St Ewe Free Range Eggs, said: “The Great Cornish Egg & Spoon Race was a challenge for both teams physically and mentally, but one we wholeheartedly embraced.
“Over five days two teams collectively walked over 298 miles of the Cornish coast path to raise money for Cornwall Air Ambulance and Hospitality Action – not a challenge for the faint hearted!
“I’m so proud of everyone involved and want to personally thank our supporters and the public for their support in both raising awareness and money for two incredibly important causes – I am delighted to say that we are now the proud holders of not just one, but two Guinness World Records, and can’t wait to see what we come up with next!”
