This Is Wiltshire: Laughing their way to a potential record are pupils at Warminster Preparatory school taking part in a national event Laughing their way to a potential record are pupils at Warminster Preparatory school taking part in a national event

It's a nervous wait for pupils at Warminster Preparatory School to see if they are record breakers for taking part in the world’s biggest three-legged race.

Fifty six pupils aged five to seven, were in a national event involving hundreds of schools running the race simultaneously across the UK.

To break the record each school needed to start the 200 metre race at exactly 2pm on Friday, May 2.

The children helped raise more than £1,000 for the Walking with the Wounded charity.

The race was designed to help youngsters understand the challenges of having a disability and to encourage teamwork.

Guinness World Records said it will take about 12 weeks to verify evidence from all the schools to confirm whether a world record has been broken.
