Woman hugs tree for over 10 hours to break Guinness record


Published in Weird News

(UPI) A Tennessee woman broke a Guinness World Record by hugging a tree in a Chattanooga park for 10 hours and 5 minutes.

Adrienne Long spent 10 hours and 5 minutes with her arms wrapped around a walnut tree at Heritage Park in Chattanooga's Brainerd neighborhood to break the previous tree-hugging record, which stood at 8 hours, 15 minutes.

Long's friend Sarah Medley, owner of Studio 59 Aveda Salon and Spa, organized activities for Long and spectators including dance, yoga and guided meditation during the attempt.


The attempt was live-streamed on the World Record Tree Hug page on Facebook.

Long's feat raised money for the local Audubon Society.
