Daredevil Antony Britton Sets World Record For Longest Body Burn

  • Stuntman does run for charity while on fire.

World Record Fire Run

The latest Guinness World Record doesn’t involve a real Iron Man suit or back-flips on a teeter-totter but it’s just as awesome to watch.

Daredevil Antony Britton, supported by Stannage Stunt Team, broke the world records for the Fastest 100 m sprint (full body burn, without oxygen) and longest distance run full-body burn (without oxygen) in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

When asked by his friends to do a charity run, Britton came up with a bigger idea. He’d do it while on fire.

A crowd at Huddersfield Rugby Union Football Club watched Britton set both records — the 100-meter sprint took just 24.58 seconds, giving him his first Guinness World Record, and his run total of 204.23 meters took the crown for the longest run while on fire.

The record attempt was to help raise money for Candlelighters children’s cancer charity and which Antony says was an “honour” to run for.
