Marathon runner aims for brain costume record

A marathon runner is hoping to break the Guinness World Record by completing the London Marathon dressed as a human brain.


Bryce Alford, the fundraising manager for the brain injury charity Headway, has been spotted running the streets of Jersey as he prepares for the race next month.

Alford has previously set the world record for the fastest 100 kilometres on a treadmill in 2003 and says that his costume is designed as a representation of what people with brain injuries feel like.

He told ITV News: “What I hear over and over again is that people feel they are trapped inside their own brain, so when you get to see me inside the costume you’ll absolutely see what that might feel like, if you can imagine that pressure, and what it would feel like to live every day.”
