Students at Mayflower Elementary School will take part in the seventh annual World Sport Stacking Association’s “Stack Up!” event from 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, according to a news release.
Thousands of people will take part in what Guinness World Records calls the “World’s Largest Sport Stacking Event.” During the course of the Guinness World Records Day, sport stackers worldwide will be up stacking and down stacking pyramids in prescribed patterns for at least 30 minutes, according to the release.
Students stack specially designed cups as fast as they can.
“Stackers race against the clock, compete in relays and often combine sport stacking with fitness challenges as part of physical education classes,” according to the release.
Last year, 412,259 stackers participated to break the 2010 record of 316,736. Mayflower students hope to help set a new record this week.
To be part of the event, Mayflower had to register 25 or more stackers with WSSA. Once each student complete the 30 minutes of stacking, the school and a witness must send an online verification of numbers to WSSA, which will pass on the total to Guinness for official recognition, according to the release.
