    Haven't you just found a big staircase and walked down it? What if I found a 350 long staircase - would that make me a record breaker??

    if you wanted could you just go in say your house and go down them and go back up then down again over and over?

    I think counting and verifying this one for future attempts will be tricky...

    Is this "consecutively descended"? ie. if you go back up and down again do the next set of going down count towards the total, or do the stairs need to be consecutive, as soon as you go up the count stops?

    We didn't record going up, unfortunately.
