The runners, who make up Team CRW, broke the record on Sunday while running to raise funds for charity organization Cancer Research Wales during an event in Tenby, Wales.
Guinness World Records uploaded photos to Twitter of Team CRW running the marathon where 122 runners were linked together through different types of rope.
