Fancy running the fastest marathon dressed as a toilet, emoji or insect?

Guinness World Records has teamed up collaborated with the Virgin Money London Marathon to provide the most creative fun runners along the 26.2 mile course.

A huge 90 world records are being attempted this year, featuring a total of 98 runners.

This year’s Virgin Money London Marathon will be Bob’s 11th and is not his first Guinness World Records title attempt. Between 2009 and 2010, Bob held the record for the Fastest marathon dressed as a vegetable and this year he will try to claim back his status as a current Guinness World Record title holder when he attempts to break the record for the Fastest marathon dressed as a toilet (male).

In 2008, Michelle became the first person to set the record for the Fastest marathon on stilts and this year, on the 10th anniversary, she will be attempting to claim back her record. Michelle has completed a marathon only once, when she initially claimed the Guinness World Records title. Michelle works for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and therefore it was a natural choice for her to raise money for this cause.

This year will be Victoria’s first marathon and she has chosen to complete it whilst also attempting to break the Guinness World Records title for the Fastest marathon dressed as an Emoji (female). Although this will be Victoria’s first marathon, she loves training for a challenge, having completed a number of half marathons and the Prudential 100, bike ride in the past. Growing up, Victoria received the Guinness World Records annual in her Christmas stocking every year and she is now keen to tick breaking a record off her bucket list.

Barnaby is no stranger to running long distances, as he has lost count of how many marathons and super marathons he has finished. He runs every day, and when training for a marathon he increases his mileage, along with adding some high intensity training. While this is Barnaby’s first Guinness World Record title attempt, he ran the Virgin Money London Marathon in Captain America dress last year for fun.
