A new Guinness World Record of Largest Barefoot Race was set in Shanghai over the weekend as over 1,000 runners finished a 100-meter distance on barefoot at Pudong's Oriental Sports Center on Saturday morning.
The barefoot race was held as part of the 2017 Health China Four-Season Run, which featured a total of 3,000 runners. After finishing a 3.8km untimed distance, the 1,000-plus runners took off their shoes and successfully challenged the Largest Barefoot Race record together, watched by a Guinness officer.
The organizer Shanghai Pharmaceutical Holding Co. invited some myasthenia gravis patients to participate in the event to call for more care for this group of people.
