Where: Half Moon Bay Ocean Course located at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, California

When: 7:00AM April 22nd to 7:00AM April 23rd, 2019

Who: Former MLB player turned ultra endurance athlete Eric Byrnes will attempt to break a 47 year old record set by Ian Colston, who at 35, played 401 holes (22 rounds and 5 holes) at Bendigo GC in Victoria, Australia on November 27-28, 1971.

In April of 2018, Byrnes played a mind-blowing 245 holes of golf without a cart breaking the 12 Hour Speed Golf World Record set in 2016 when New Zealander Brad Luiten played 237 holes. Byrnes played 13.5 rounds and ran a total of 65.5 miles in the allotted 12 hour time period at the Napa Valley Golf Club at Kennedy Park.

Why: Last year, Byrnes and his wife Tarah started the Let Them Play Foundation (501 c3) in an effort to get kids back outside and playing. As a kickoff event for the foundation Byrnes completed the first ever transcontinental Triathlon Across America by swimming 7 miles across the San Francisco Bay, biking over 2400 miles from Oakland to Chicago and then running 905 miles from Chicago to New York City.

Along the way, the Let Them Play Foundation raised funds and handed out over 30 grants to different youth activity organizations across the country who showed a commitment to let kids PLAY.

The Let Them Play Foundation will use the 24 Hour World Record attempt as a way to bring awareness to increasing lack of youth activity and to raise funds for grants which will continue to be delivered to a variety of different youth activity organizations across the nation.
