World Record Marathon TAB success
Ex-Para officer Mike Ellicock won a Guinness World Record with 40lbs on his back in the London Marathon on April 21st.
His time of 3:25:21 eclipsed those set by a Royal Marine at London in 2011 and a Japanese tabber in Tokyo at 3:42 in February this year.
Mike was wounded on Op Barras, Sierre Leone, in 2000. Read his full story HERE
Mike ran for Paracharity and has raised over £25k. You can still show your appreciation of Mike’s outstanding effort.
