Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page you little legend.[/p][p]So on 6th July 2014 at the Milton Keynes Half Marathon Mat Brown and Richard Bazeley will be teaming up and attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest half marathon in a two person pantomime costume, where we will be dressed as a camel!![/p][p]That's right you heard it here first and the Carb Loaded Camel will be ready to take on this challenge and with the current record already set at 02:03:20 this will be no walk in the desert.[/p][p]Mat really wanted to hold the head high, but sadly being so vertically challenged he will be occupying the rear section of the costume, he's used to following orders from the leader.[/p][p]Richard likes to think he's at the front because he's a born leader, but sadly he is just a bit lanky and used to being chased by men. [/p][p]We read that in the wild, because food is hard to come by camels will eat just about anything they find, so we will be following this nutrition plan to the letter.[/p][p]I have no idea why we would do this in the middle of July when it's most likely to be boiling hot, but it just adds to the intensity of the challenge and best simulates the natural environment of the camel, we're hoping to really get into character. Hopefully with all the training we will be doing our wives won't get the hump with us.[/p][p]We are raising for breakthrough breast cancer as Richard's mother and mother in law, as well as Mat's mother in law are all breast cancer survivors and we know that without the medical treatment available things could have been different. Clearly neither of us are doctors (I mean come on have you met us) but we do have enough brain capacity to run round Milton Keynes dressed as a camel in record breaking time to convince you to donate a few quid to this worthy cause, and help the breakthrough scientists continue to research towards a cure. PLEASE DIG DEEP AND DONATE, no donation is too big or small.[/p][p]If you'd prefer to donate by text thenb please text CARB99 £5 to 70070 (or £2 or £10, whatever you wish to donate).[/p][p]Thanks everyone![/p][p]Follow us on Twitter: [url=http://www.twitter.com/carbloadedcamel]www.twitter.com/carbloadedcamel[/url][/p][p]Like us on Facebook: [url=http://www.facebook.com/carbloadedcamel]www.facebook.com/carbloadedcamel[/url][/p][p]subscribe to our videos www.youtube.com/user/carbloadedcamel [/p][p]Wear our Twibbon on your profile picture: [url=http://www.twibbon.com/support/carbloadedcamel]www.twibbon.com/support/carbloadedcamel[/url] [/p][p]Buy your running kit from our sponsor & official footwear supplier [url=http://www.sweatshop.co.uk]www.sweatshop.co.uk[/url] [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
