Over 30 weird and wonderful records were broken at this year's race on 26 April. Here are some of our favourites...
1. Dressed as a crustacean
Giles Lock got round in 3 hours 24 min. At least he didn’t pull a mussel.
The fastest of this year’s record-breakers was Paul Martelletti who came in at an elite time of 2 hours 30 min. Marvel-lous!
3. Four-person costume
Andy, David and Ian Newman and Neil Hendy completed the course in 6 hours 23 min, six minutes faster than the previous record. Bob’s your uncle.
4. Carrying a 40lb pack (female)
Eva Clarke didn’t weight around. She ran the marathon in 4 hours 32 min with this massive backpack.
5. As a bird
The new category of fastest marathon dressed as a three-dimensional bird was achieved by Bob Johnson in 5 hours 50 min. He must’ve been flying.
6. As a musical instrument
Thomas Jones ran this one in 4 hours 26 min. He’s certainly no quitar.
