Well done Lloyd. I remember seeing you in the deep sea divers suit and I was running the marathon that year. My wife had a banner with ‘run you lazy git!’ written on it and she rather cruelly stood next to you so my brother could take a photo! Well done on completing yet another great challenge.

My story

This is it! My final London Marathon!

Over the last 21 years, I have completed the London marathon in a number of costumes, such as the deep-sea diving suit, St George pulling a dragon, Indiana Jones being 'chased by a boulder, the Iron Giant robot (on stilts), The Beatles Yellow Submarine and even crawling around the course as Brian the Snail from the Magic Roundabout. I hope that I have managed to put a smile on some people's faces with these efforts.

During the last couple of years, I have been battling an extremely rare form of cancer, called synovial sarcoma. In 2021, having undergone major surgery to remove a massive tumour from my throat, I was informed that this was cancerous. I underwent several weeks of radiotherapy, followed by several further months of pretty unpleasant side effects.

My first two scans after the operation were clear and I thought the treatment had done the trick and rid me of the cancer. Somewhat disappointingly, my third scan revealed the cancer had returned, in a virtually inaccessible location behind my right jaw.

In August 2022, I underwent an epic 13 ½ hour operation, to remove the tumour, surrounding tissue and to reconstruct my mouth and throat. Following complications, just two days later I was rushed back into theatre for further emergency life-saving surgery.

A huge part of the motivation during my recovery was to thank the amazing surgeons and raise funds and the profile of the Sarcoma UK charity, by putting on a costume and completing the London Marathon one last time. Just seven months after my surgery, thanks to the expertise of those surgeons and support of the Charity, that is what I am now able to attempt.

Due to a rule change (for which I think I am partly responsible) I have to finish on the day of the race. This time my costume is going to be Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. Throughout the last couple of years, when the future has seemed very uncertain, I remembered watching Captain Scarlet as a kid (I am old enough to have seen it when it was first broadcast in the 60’s). The fact he always manages to recover and come back for another mission, struck a chord with me. Although I would never claim to be ‘indestructible,’ having previously suffered from leukaemia, fractured neck, two hip replacements, knee replacement, a heart arrhythmia and now the sarcoma, I think the term ‘reconstructible would be more appropriate!

Thanks to my old buddy from Leyton Orient, Mark Blackhall, the costume has been sponsored by Allied Hygiene and made by Plunge Creations, who make the amazing costumes for The Masked Singer. My thanks to both of them for enabling me participate in my final London Marathon as I had wished.

Please support me on my final 26.2 mile challenge, in tribute to those amazing surgeons and to raise funds for an incredibly important charity.

Spectrum Is Green!
