I am looking for someone who wants to have a real fun London Marathon to run/walk with me in costume to help raise money for my charity helping orphans and needy children in Uganda. You will need to carry a bucket which will be emptied every 4 or 5 miles around the route by the charity. I already have a 'Wonderwoman' with me but any costume that is comfortable to wear would do.
At present the only 24 hour track race in the U.K. is the annual Tooting Bec race but following the success of the recent British Ultrafest which incorporated a 48 and 24 hour options I have decided to organise this one off event.
In May 1982 Gloucester A.C. athlete Dave Dowdle ran a remarkable 170 miles on the cinder track at Blackbridge, Gloucester. This was a new world record and has remained as a U.K. record with no runner getting anywhere near that distance since.
