Congratulations to Gary from Neath, South Wales. Gary is a rugby referee and that is how he stays fit and helps with his training for races. Gary is the winner of our costume contest for the 2022 Reggae Marathon. Here’s a quick Q & A with Gary about his costume for the Reggae Marathon.
What inspired your Reggae Marathon costume?
I saw the email from yourselves saying that it was also a fancy dress race and as I was going to run / walk the half marathon I thought, why not That same day I was donating some items to a charity shop and the costume was in there, so I had to have it. I did complain to the staff that I only came in to donate and not to spend any money.
Do you regularly wear costumes while running?
This is the first time that I have worn a costume and it was very hot.
Anything else that you’d like to share?
I have run your race once before many years ago so I knew what a great event it is.
I am already looking forward to next year’s race and will train properly for it. I will not run it at the end of a two week all-inclusive holiday , I will get my timings right .
Thank you Gary for participating in our costume contest. We look forward to seeing you next year!
