Setting Guinness World Record™ Begins Noon Friday At Wake Nation Cincinnati

(Cincinnati, OH) –  A 10-member team…24 straight hours of wakeboarding…1,400 laps around a 10-acre lake…covering 470 miles of water… it all begins Friday at noon…making Guinness World Record™ history at Wake Nation Cincinnati in Fairfield’s Joyce Park.

The team of 10 wakeboarders – including three professional wakeboarding champions — will be setting a new world record for most distance traveled on a wakeboard in 24 hours. The distance traveled will be like wakeboarding from Cincinnati to Atlanta!

The 24-hour world record attempt begins noon Friday, June 25, and ends on noon Saturday, June 26. The world record attempt is officially sanctioned by Guinness World Records™, the ultimate authority on record-breaking achievement.

The public is invited to join in the fun all weekend long, and will be able to ride on Wake Nation’s lake right alongside the record-breaking riders throughout the Guinness World Record™ attempt.

Admission and parking for the entire event is FREE. All donations and pledges from the event will benefit MedLend, a non-profit organization that provides medical missions to impoverished countries around the globe.

As if setting a world-record weren’t enough, following the event on Saturday at 12:15 p.m., a couple of wakeboarding enthusiasts – Dori Craig and Tony Migliorisi from Northern Kentucky –  will be getting married at the Wake Nation dock, then take their first spin on the water as husband and wife.

The award-winning Wake Nation Cincinnati is Ohio’s only watersports’ cable park where riders can wakeboard, water ski, kneeboard, and wakeskate around a 10-acre lake WITHOUT A BOAT. Riders are pulled around the oval lake at speeds of 18-20 miles per hour by a circulating, overhead cable system that runs 35 feet above the water

Wake Nation Cincinnati is open daily through October. Summer hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. More information: (513) 887-WAKE, or www.wakenation.com.
