Cornwall based St Ewe Free Range Eggs will be attempting a Guinness World Record this summer as they set out to walk the 300 miles of Cornwall’s iconic coastline endeavouring to set the record for the World’s Longest Egg & Spoon Race; raising funds and awareness for Hospitality Action and Cornwall Air Ambulance.
The event was inspired following the events of the past three years with Covid-19, Brexit and the ongoing cost-of-living crisis causing problems for the farming, food production, hospitality and tourism sectors.
Cornwall as a region has been particularly impacted by these events. St Ewe Eggs has decided to support two worthwhile charities through its world record attempt: Hospitality Action and Cornwall Air Ambulance.
The event will take place between 3 and 7 July with two teams racing to the Land’s End finish line. Along the way, there will be handover points where local businesses will be hosting foodie pop-ups where the public can come and ‘egg-on’ the teams.
Bex Tonks, Farmer and CEO at St Ewe Eggs remarks: “Taking this nostalgic British event to the coast path of Cornwall in aid of two remarkable charities ‘Hospitality Action’ and ‘Cornwall Air Ambulance,’ seems the least we can do in light of all the support they offer.
The egg industry itself has been under huge pressure over the last three years and we would like to highlight how extraordinary and nutritious eggs are, and to remind people to support the British food industry; in turn supporting farmers through to restaurateurs.
