Three years ago the family of Colchester singer Anna Pancaldi started up a charity in memory of her dear brother Joe.
The charity, called History Maker Foundation organise many events funrdraising events throughout the year and on Sunday 2nd October the charity is attempting to re-claim the Guinness Record for the world’s biggest piggy back race.
Taking place in Colchester’s Lower Castle Park the fun community event attracted 296 participants last yearwho raced over a 100m course to claim the record but were unfortunately beaten to the record in November 2010 by Diesel UK Jeans.
So this year it’s all about beating last year’s efforts. 301 people would be enough but surely the wonderful people of Colchester can do a lot better than that?
The event is open for adults and children of all ages and registration is at 2.30pm for the race at 3.30pm. It costs a donation of £2 to enter and all money raised goes to the History Maker Foundation.
