Bob Johnson Gala Harrier is attempting:
Guinness World Record for the “fastest marathon as a three-dimensional toy” @ this years London marathon.
The progress to date on the costume is shown on the attached lo-res photo. It will be a tough marathon cause the costume is 14lbs already and seems to be creeping up towards 18lbs. The weight plus the wind resistance plus being cramped inside a paper and Mache shell for hours will make it quite an adventure.
Bob is raising money for “The Children’s Trust” who do tremendous work in looking after kids with brain injuries either from birth or from some sort of accident. I’ve got a sponsor page set-up with Virgin Money who are the
principal sponsor of the London Marathon.
