A man from Bideford is running the London Marathon is a quirky costume to raise money for Childrenâ€™s Hospice South West
A MAN from Bideford will be running the London Marathon for Childrenâ€™s Hospice South West with a twist some might consider a bit â€˜quackersâ€™.
Rob Floyd, from Bideford, has taken inspiration from Little Bridge House mascot Star, an Indian runner duck, and will be taking on the marathon dressed as a duck.
Rob, 45, has run the marathon over 20 times, twice for CHSW, and is looking for help sourcing an appropriate duck costume.
He said: â€œIf there is anyone out there willing to help by making or donating such an item, I would love to hear from you. To see an Indian Runner duck moving at top speed is a sight to keep everyone laughing; I hope to emulate this at the Marathon but canâ€™t do it without the costume.â€
Rob will be running the marathon with his girlfriend Maxine Heard and sister Katherine Floyd, both novice participants.
If anyone has a suitable duck costume or can help source or make one, please contact Emma Perry at Little Bridge House on 01271 325270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
