London Marathon 2010: Giraffe man

I'm not sure how tall Blackfriars Tunnel is but I imagine this London Marathon competitor would have struggled getting through it yesterday. 

Also - I'm pretty sure the route passes through the tunnel bit of London Wall, which would have been rather problematic for giraffe man. His neck was so tall that my lens couldn't fit it all in.

Giraffe man was my favourite fancy dress outfit at the 2010 London Marathon, although Richard Branson's butterfly ran him pretty close. Superwoman had been putting the hours in too, and was sporting a few strands of chest hair by mile 22.

    I am the guy who ran in the giraffe costume, tunnels were so difficult as i could not straighten my back to rest... the other runners were fantastic to cheer me on to get me to the end of each tunnel!!
