TO FEEL THE FORCE JEZ ALLINSON, THE RUN­NING STORMTROOPER

Runner's World (UK) - - LONDON CALLING - justgiv­ing.com/rogueone

‘ I’m go­ing for the “Fastest Marathon dressed as a Star

Wars char­ac­ter” world record. Guin­ness have set me a time limit of five hours, which is a big ask in this cos­tume. The suit is hor­ri­ble to run in! It gets hot and chafes, plus you can’t hear well and you lose pe­riph­eral vi­sion. I’ve been train­ing in it once or twice a week – it al­ways brings beeps, waves and smiles. Why run dressed as a Stormtrooper? Well, I’m a big Star Wars fan, but it’s also be­cause you need to do some­thing spe­cial to raise high amounts of money for char­ity.’
