JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- They're trying to slide into the Guinness Book of World Records and they're doing it one slide at a time.

The third annual Slide-a-Thon kicked off Friday night at Adventure Landing in Jacksonville Beach.

dozens of contestants paid a fee and are competing to beat the world record for non-stop sliding that was reached right here last year

The current record holder is Craig Rogers. He clocked in at 33 hours 48 minutes exactly without stopping. Rogers is competing again this year.

A spokesperson said people are trying to beat that record this year.
A Guinness Book of World Records representative wasn't at the park, but there's a long process with trying to set a record. It includes continuous video.

It could take up to 8 months to see if the world record is indeed broken.

The money raised at the Slide-a-Thon will go to the Ronald McDonald House charities of Jacksonville and Gainesville.
