Crazy Marathon Fancy Dress!

Each year the London Marathon draws in thousands of runners, all intent on crossing that distant finishing line....

Now there´s nothing we love better than a bit of fancy dress - and especially when it´s in aid of charity! So what´s better than Charitable fancy dress you may ask??

Record Breaking, Charitable Fancy Dress of course!

Fancy Dress - London Marathon Fancy Dress We love this Wizard of Oz fancy dress theme!

Yes, not only were some dedicated people trying to complete the 26.2 mile course, but they were also committed to certain record breaking rules... To qualify for a Record Breaking award all contestants were instructed to finish as they start, and therefore had to keep hold of any props, eg walking sticks, clubs, wings, stethoscopes etc etc!

So let´s see the stats!

- 29 NEW marathon world records were set - including "The Fastest Time For A Person Dressed as Where´s Wally"!

- One man from from West Yorkshire, was wearing a 1/12 scale model of The Angel of the North... He hoped that his costume, which was 14ft 1in (4.3m) tall with a wingspan of 14ft 9in (4.5m), would win him the record of tallest costume!

- Another male from Sutton, dressed as Fred Flintstone and brandishing an inflatable club was awarded the title of Fastest Cartoon Character! And the Official Stats: - Included a Grand Total of 37,500 runners

- Wilson Kipsang won the men´s race: finishing in 2 hours, 4 minutes and 44 seconds ... And doing it for the girls, Mary Keitany defended her women´s race title: finishing in 2 hours, 18 minutes and 36 seconds, setting a new national record in the process!
