Excel man completes London Marathon

Mark managed to complete the 26.2 miles in an official time of four hours one minute in a baby costume.

Mark took on the challenge following a New Year’s Eve bet after a friend teased him as being too ‘past it’ to complete another marathon in his personal best of three hours and 35 minutes.

Mark said: “In reality I think completed the course in a pretty good time. My unofficial time was 3 hours and 48 minutes, as it took ten minutes to reach the start line – and that in fancy dress!

“I should really say ‘never again’, although rumour has it there will be a giant pepperami running next year.”
