Welllll, not exactly banned. This year they've imposed a cut-off at 9 hours and as he was planning on taking 5 days+, he's been rejected. I pretty much agree with that decision. Why exactly does he want to wear a diving suit? He could dress up as Spiderman or a pint of beer or something and be round inside 9 houirs I expect.

9 hours is a generous cut off

Mind you, that would have ruled out Michael Watson too

lloyd Scott has done it loads of times
maybe he should run and go for a decent time for a change

yeah i'm getting pissed off with all that kind of shit too. Especially hate when people get a mention for holding marathon world records for fastest 'hippo, baked bean tin whatever'. Just a matter of coming up with an original method of ridiculousness and you get to call yourself a 'world record holder'.

I wanted to spit when he did the Indiana Jones/Boulder thing. Mainly because MnP get barred for elf and safety reasons and yet a bloke pulling an 8 ft boulder gets let in.

baaaahhhhhhh!!!!!

Yes, that was my thought on the boulder.

Fair play to him: he'd raised a shed load of money for good causes, but maybe it's just time to actually... erm... run this running event.

:-o

At least it didn't devalue the currency of the "race" in any sense.
