World Longest Rubber Band Chain Guinness Record set by Allison Coach

An 11-year-old Michigan girl set a world record with a rubber band chain stretching 1.3 miles long, Guinness World Records  said.

The record-keeping group said Allison Coach displayed her creation to a Guinness surveyor Monday at L'Anse Creuse Middle School East in Chesterfield Township, The Detroit News reported Tuesday.

The chain, which included 22,140 rubber bands and measured 6,956.68 feet, broke the record of 5,170 feet, Guinness officials said.

"I did it for fun," Coach told the News. "I just started to tie them together. I looked up the record and figured it was short enough where I could beat it."

Coach said she keeps her rubber band chain wrapped around a wooden stand made by her grandfather.

"I'll probably keep them until they start rotting and fall apart," she said.
