The course, which runs across the university’s campus in Atlanta and spans 4.2 miles, was developed by members of a first-year leadership organization called See(k)(D) is Comfort, or SEED.

“To be able to qualify as a world record holder in the eyes of Guinness, we have to hope for it,” Henning said. Due to the course’s difficulty, many of the students who complete it are distance runners or elite athletes.
This feat was photographed and submitted to the Guinness Book of Records for verification.
Guinness confirmed to CNN that it had received an application from the group of students for the title. However, it may take weeks to confirm.
