From 8:00am 29th till 8:00am 30th June 2011 The Rugby Football League, in association with Salford City College, Salford City Reds, Leisure IN Salford and The Steve Prescott Foundation will try to break the world record for the most people involved in a round the clock game of touch rugby.
The event will raise money for The Christie Charity and aims to involve at least 1,000 individuals from across the North West. Players are invited to play whenever they can make it across the 24 hours, with various themed sessions involving professional players, club mascots, female only and student participants. The final hour of the competition will be the “game of hope” and will feature cancer patients and families of those who have been treated at Christies.
Everyone is welcome at this world record attempt, whether they have played Rugby League before or not; there will be a warm up pitch alongside the two playing fields where learners can watch demonstrations and basic touch rugby rules will be explained throughout the day.
The event will take place at Eccles Sixth Form Centre, part of Salford City College, and registration will cost £10 for an individual or £75 for a team of ten. If you are interested in taking part you can request a registration form from Touchathon@yahoo.co.uk or pick one up from your local Rugby League Club.
