On Sunday afternoon the Newcastle University Pole Dancing Society will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘Longest Pole Marathon.’

The current record stands at 24 hours, and they aim to beat it by dancing for an impressive 30 hours!


The marathon aims to raise the profile of their society in addition to their principle goal of raising money for Infants Trust; a UK based charity that exists to break the cycle of violence and abuse against small children in South Africa.

There will be two poles in action, with the dancers doing rolling one-hour shifts.

Up to 30 dancers will be participating, 15 of which are beginners and one very brave boy!

Harriet Skinner, the Events Manager of NUPD, will be there for all 30 hours overseeing proceedings and of course putting a few good shifts in.


All proceeds raised by the society will be going to the charity, so please go along to Venue in the NUSU between 2pm on Sunday and 8pm on Monday to show your support!
