March 5-6th, 2005: Heather Wellard of Tonbridge England made her first attempt to establish the first Guinness world record set with a speed bag by punching non-stop for 26 hours.
This was to be the very first Guinness speed bag entry. It took place at Peak Fitness in Kent UK, and she was helped by her personal trainer, Jack McBrien and her boyfriend/fiancee Rik. the event also raised money for several charities, The Muscular Dystrophy campaign, and the Hospice in the Weld.Unfortunately the Guinness Judges did not accept the proof submitted for this event, and Heather was left to try again. But in January of 2014, (above) she did it!
SpeedBagCentral.com  and all speed bag fans congratulate Heather on her incredible accomplishment.

She wisely mixes in Hook Punching combinations to relieve the burn.
this is the face of concentration and dedication. Only 13 hours to go!
the rules are simple:  keep the bag going non-stop for 50 minutes of every hour. Keep verified records to prove you did it.
