Sean Duffy from Columbia University and Leo Chau of the University of Colorado at Boulder are attempting to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Distance Continuously Crawled, which is currently set at a little more than 31 miles.
The doggy-style feat, which will take place at a high school running track in Colorado, is expected to take about 38 hours.
Duffy says he and his partner have been preparing for the feat by doing a lot of cardio work and back exercises.
He even plans on getting on all fours and crawling five to ten miles in Central Park in New York within the next couple of weeks.
Although he admits it will be a little embarrassing, he will try to save face by wearing a t-shirt explaining that hes attempting the feat to raise $20,000 for a pediatric AIDS foundation.
