in a spectacular way...
SUb 40 10k! Ok im getting there. But then 7 hours overall, the wheels went somewhere!
RW got to find this guy. Get him in the mag. Saying that love to see him at a 10k. suprise a few racing snakes.
Yep I'll agree with you that he must have been going some! I started in pen 2 of the Red start, and crossed the start line after only 15-20 secs and then saw him parked up on the side of the road at about (I thought) 6 miles or so. I'd got to that point by doing 7m27s mm pace and had to do a double take when I saw him as I couldn't work out how someone SO large had managed to get to that point ahead of me.
He looked ready to pass out when I saw him...
Well... using my researcher skills....
He ran for click sargent, however i can't find him on just giving or on be my charity... all slightly strange
But here are the photos
It takes me an hour to get round a 10k (and I'm 9 and a half stone... )
Is it this guy?
Just looked at the pics and if that's him in the purple top there is almost no way he could run a 37min 10k being that size.
As a larger runner at my peek fitness I could only manage 48 mins and I was no where near his bulk then.
There must of been some chip timing problem at the start?
1 hour 45 minutes for the last 7km. Brilliant
He doesn't have an individual Bmycharity page because he was running as part of a team - "Team Billy"
I did a quick google on him, and the 2nd or 3rd thing that came up was "Charles Egerton - breakfast for 6". Unfortunate! (it was a prize he'd donated)
Still, very impressive he continued. I saw him come past just before 6 miles, he looked like he was going to explode and we were sure he was going to get taken off in an ambulance. He must have incredible willpower.
