The Guinness world record for the largest simultaneous egg and spoon race involved 1,277 participants racing at various venues around Herefordshire, UK.
Guinness World Records says the egg-dyeing category is new, with guidelines stipulating there must be at least 250 participants equipped with at least one hard-boiled egg, spoon and enough dye to submerge his or her egg.
The eggs must be dyed for precisely 3 minutes, at which point participants must simultaneously remove their ovum from said dye using said spoon. Each egg must be dyed fully and be presented to the Guinness World Records adjudicator for approval, the release said.
