As you can imagine here at Promotion Props and Costumes we love seeing people in wacky dress up and one of the best places to catch them all frolicking about is at one of the many marathon events held annually all across the UK.
If you are unaware of the ‘Marathon Costume’ then I’m not really sure what to suggest you’ve been getting up to but whatever it was it has definitely lead to you missing out on some very creative and outright bizarre get ups.
For many years now it has been becoming more and more popular to wear a costume when running a marathon, not so much for the full on professional runner but more for the occasional amateur and especially for those running on behalf of a chosen charity.
The general idea is to get more people to notice you and basically to make it more fun for yourself and everyone else involved. This has resulted in an ever growing crowd following at the events and more and more people partaking in the actual marathon and wearing costumes just like the ones below.

So as you can see fancy dress and mascot costumes are a very big deal when it comes to marathon culture, in fact they are expected and many would be extremely disappointed to turn up to a marathon with everyone in the traditional running gear.
Make a statement, get fit while having fun or just look silly just because...
We are happy to work from an existing design or we can create a new character just for you; the choice is yours.
