(Obtain our permission to host a world record event)
The four basic requirements* to have a new world record recognized are:
1) the attempt is measurable

3) it should be verifiable;
4) it represent a real achievement, it's legal, moral and sets a good example for others.
You need a written confirmation from WRA to organize your record attempt.
You need to be at least 18 years old to submit this application; if you aren't, please ask your parent or legal guardian to submit the form for you.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS
WRA's 10yrs experience and over 4,300 records listed on our website (and other tens of thousands in our offline database) shows that it's better to submit the event well in advance to have enough time to get the permission, our rules, instructions, etc.
The very first step in setting a new world record is to obtain the official recognition for your attempt; this will help you attract sponsors, public, media, etc. It simply proves you are SERIOUS about this. WRA offers the most RELIABLE world record certification services.
While not mandatory, we strongly recommend the following time frame for a successful event):
a) Personal records events: at least 3 months in advance;
b) all mass participation records: 3-6 months in advance;
c) round-the-world attempts: 6-12 months in advance
Do NOT use this form if you already have set a record; submit your new record on this page.
Personal achievements like 'largest collection of..' or the' tallest dog owned' , 'longest legs' or similar can be submitted directly on the final registration page, click here.
