Now, as we expand our footprint across the state, we are excited to bring Hoosiers together to break a world record and have a lot of fun doing it,” said Dan Donovan, GetGo spokesperson, in a news release.

The event is free to the public and everyone who participates will be part of an Official Guinness World Records attempt and receive a commemorative t-shirt.

Randomly selected participants will receive free sandwiches for a year.

The event is open to all ages, and only those ages 16 and up can handle food product. Children under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants cannot wear open-toed shoes.
