Loyola University Maryland Rokerthon Guinness World Record 2017

Loyola University Maryland students break the Guinness World Record for "crab walking" with 494 students.

Al Roker is coming to Loyola University Maryland for a live broadcast of  "Rokerthon: College Tour" on NBC's The Today Show on Thursday, March 30! During Rokerthon, The Today Show's Al Roker will visit a select number of colleges and universities as they break Guinness World Records on their campuses.
The Guinness World Record that Loyola will attempt to break is the most people crab walking simultaneously for two minutes—a record currently held by Northeastern University. To break this record, hundreds of members of the Loyola community will participate in the crab walk on the Quad, beginning at 5:15 a.m. on Thursday, March 30 (rain or shine).
Join us on the Quad at 6:00 a.m. to cheer on the record breakers and see history in the making. Be sure to wear Loyola colors!

How To Do A Crab Walk

To do the "crab walk" you must place your hands on the ground, behind your back, and scuttle like a crustacean using all four limbs. You must start by sitting on the ground with your hands and feet shoulder-width apart and you must walk for two consecutive minutes. If you stop moving or touch the ground you will be disqualified from the record total.
