14,786 cubesMilán BaticzNEW OFFICIAL WORLD RECORD!!!!
Next time 5000+ ;)
Cubes/hour: 245 229 229 220 215 215 210 200 215 210 205 210 195 190 180 185 190 210 185 175 185 175 175 138.
Average: 18.05 seconds/cube.
Attempt started at 11:06am and finished the next day at 11:06am. I had 91 PLL skips and 47 OLL skips, no LL skip. I used Fridrich method all the time but the 200 solves when I started with a 2x2x2 block. My hands are OK, no problem with them. I have never practiced solving as many cubes as possible before except for the 1 hour solving event 2 days before the marathon (tried once). Thanks to: Nikolett Placsko, Oliver Perge, Robert Orkenyi, Mate Horvath, Attlia Homok, Eva Baticz, Zoltan Baticz (and there were other helpers, but I don't know their name) for helping me with scrambling my cubes and judging/counting.
Practise, practise, practise...
Record set on Nov 15 - Nov 16 2008.

23,505 cubesBalázs BernátI forgot to post this x)
My only goal was to beat Andrew's record of 3500 solves and also to go through with it not giving up before the end (I knew that I won't be able to race guys like Matyi and Milán). My right wrist died at around midnight I had to keep a longer break (~20-30 mins). During the night my perception of the f2l was a lot better. at the end I barely could solve the cross at first try / My last solve was done blindfolded.
In 3505 cubes I had 13 OLL 29 PLL and 1 LL skip and around the same amount of forced OLL-PLL skips which we didn't count.

Norbert and András scrambled from the beginning to the end.
It was a great experience!

33,500 cubesAndrew KangThis is my second attempt. I don't know why someone would do this twice after experiencing the pains of the first attempt. But I got the record so I guess it was worth it!
I got 3500 cubes solved in 19 hours and 45 minutes. So I stopped solving with 4 hours remaining. I'm pretty sure I could of gotten over 4000 at least with the remaining 4 hours. But the pain in my arms was unbearable. I solved roughly 2400 in the first 12 hours and solved the remaining 1100 in the next 7. After the 12 hour mark my hands started to give up and the pain kicked in. The nose dive I experienced was pretty bad thats why I stopped at 3500.
I personally believe that 4800 cubes solved in 24 hours is possible with the proper training. I was solving roughly a little over 200 an hour for almost 13 hours.
I want to thank all these people that came to scramble and count for the event!
Tammy Liaw (she stayed through the whole event! Thanks Tammy such a big help! :) )
Jack Meisburg (provided his home for the event)
Andy Lei (We raced 1 on 1 for a while so that I could keep up my 200/hour quota around 10 hours into the marathon)
Taylor Lemm
George Stewart
Josh Chu
Sam Kang (brother)
Gene Park
Colleen Lu
I hope that no one beats this record anytime soon so that I won't have to do this event for a 3rd time. Not that I will haha.
Set on Jan 4- Jan 5 2008.

73,142 cubesAndrew KangI did this in December of 2006. I reached 3142 on hour 21.5 and decided to stop there because I didn't feel like it. This attempt was an unofficial attempt. I don't know why, but I'm going to try again ASAP with a WCA official there and I'll get my personal goal of 3600+ next time!
Don't have all the names of people that helped me out but. Thanks Joy for hosting the event and feeding us! Congratulations on getting accepted into WASH U! Thanks to all the members of the Chattahoochee Cube Club (www.hoochcube.com) and all the middle schoolers that came to help out as well. I hope to be able to do this (officially) some time in late 2007.

83,141 cubesBrent Morgan3141 = 1000*(Pi). This was done at Caltech on February 18, 2006. Cube #2001 was done at 12 hours and 8 minutes. I could have kept up the pace if I truly wanted to, but I could work at my consistency. I thank Mark Polinkovsky, Mark Sullivan, Daniel Lo, Shelley Chang, Leyan Lo, Michael White, Michael Inadomi, Eileen Xie, Christopher Kreuger, Matthew Wallisa, Adam Zamora, and Tyson Mao for scrambling and helping out. Thanks to Chris Hunt for the timer, and all the speedcuber pals I have for motivation. I do see 4000 possible, and I'll be willing to do another attempt at this only if someone else is. I actually did 3141.5 cubes, following Pi by as many decimal places as possible. Now that I think about it, one of my first averages of 100 cubes, which started the category on www.speedcubing.com, was done on Pi day. Interesting.20060218

142,000 cubesJess Bonde(Only) cubed for 22 hours and 16 minutes. 
151,337 cubesAndrew NelsonFrom 8am Saturday to 8am Sunday. I didn't time individual solves. I solved at an average of about 50 seconds, though. I had a clock and I started once a minute. Took a 2 minute break every hour, plus a five minute break every 2 hours to lubricate my cubes. My brother and my friend Justin scrambled. This was really fun. I think I can beat that. And yes, the 1337 was on purpose.20060320
161,000 cubesZbigniew ZborowskiI and my nephew Slawomir Wolanin and my niece Iwona Wolanin (my scramblers) were making several "hour's sessions". This was my train for wc2003. During the whole day I have solved about 1000 cubes (maybe a little bit more :). zz20030819
