Do Not Staple: Knitting Marathon - Join Me

I am attempting to break the Guinness World Record for, "longest scarf knit whilst running a marathon".

I will make the attempt at the Kansas City Marathon October 19th, 2013.

I need your help. -David

Be A Witness

The Finish Line

Look for my family in "Knit & Run" t-shirts at the finish line near E. Pershing and Grand Boulevard to gather as a group. I estimate that I will cross the finish line with the pace group between 12:45 and 1:00. Be there to cheer, lend a hand, or gawk at awesome long scarfness.

My Official Witnesses

I am very fortunate to have several professionals in their fields to act as witnesses. Special thanks to them. Please visit their businesses.

Submit a Witness Statement

If you see me on the run send me an email detailing when, where, and what you saw. I can use the information in support of my record claim submission materials. Huge bonus for mailing a hand-signed note.

Running Partners/Witnesses Needed

You can be there! I am specifically looking for individuals interested in running with me. The record attempt requires witnesses present for the whole attempt who can make written statements validating the record. Persons of credibility in their community would be a huge asset. So consider this a call to run a marathon. Ideally you have run a marathon before and are able to run the marathon in 5 hours 45 minutes. I am planning on running with an official pace team to ensure the time. This would mean running just under a 12 minute mile. If you can comfortably run a 10 minute mile, or 6mph, you could do it.

I would love to know about people that can be at the race to cheer for me personally, Alzheimer's Research, Crazy Knitting, or simply marathon endurance.
