Nearly 71,000 California students, parents and teachers jumped their way into the world record books earlier this year.

The state-wide effort took place on February 1 and this week, Guinness World Record officials said California set the record for the most people skipping rope at the same time in different places.

The final result was that 70,880 people at 294 locations had jumped for 10 minutes at the same time.
