(UPI) Good luck to the guys from @AskNationwide who are attempting to break a Guinness World Record today in support of Julia's House. The record? Longest distance travelled in a conga line - yes you read that correctly!

A group of coworkers at a British company danced in a conga line for 14 miles to break a Guinness World Record and raise money for charity.
The employees of Nationwide Building Society were joined together by a length of string to keep them traveling in a line as they did the conga for 57 laps around the Black Lace track in Bournemouth, England.
The song "Do the Conga" played on a loop 110 times during the 5 1/2-hour world record attempt.
The group said they traveled a total 14 miles, beating the previous record of 11 miles. They are now seeking official recognition from Guinness World Records.
The conga dancers raised money for Julia's House children's hospice.Copyright 2019 by United Press International
