The Treasure Trails World Records
Following Treasure Trails entering the Guinness World Records book, we decided to create our own Treasure Trails records for our interpid Trailers!
We created 19 and asked you what you thought that our 20th Treasure Trails World Record should be. We had some great suggestions, some of our favourites were the following:
Longest time to find a clue
85 minutes: Clue 1 Cheltenham Trail shared between Amy Cook, James Cook, Sarah Corbett and Bill Corbett
From Steve North
Snowiest Trail. 3 generations fighting 6ft drifts in Troutbeck
From Roger Inglis
Most incorrect answers in a year
From Emma Hill (how many have you got wrong Emma?!)
Fastest time to complete a Trail
From Paul Gibbons (come on then Paul - which Trail was it, and how quick were you? The Corfe 4 Kids Trail doesn't count!)
My husband and I have done a Treasure Trail in pitch darkness (at night) and also two on successive Christmas days.M/strong>
From Penni Harrison We love this Penni, it's so nice to share your Christmas day evenings with you!
But, after some discussions in the office, we have created our 20th Treasure Trails World Record which goes to Diane Jeary for...
The Trail completed in the wettest weather!
