Marathon man measures up


Local window cleaner Terry Bradbury, 49, set a new world record at this year’s London Marathon for ‘the fastest marathon dressed as a tool’ category. Terry, who runs Purecleanplus window cleaning services, ran dressed as a tape measure, raising £893 for the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice. He finished the gruelling 26.2 mile course in 3hrs 49mins 45secs smashing the world record for this category by 11 minutes.

“It was tough running that distance in the costume, especially as I’d forgotten to apply my anti-chafing cream, but the outcome was well worth it,” said Terry. “I raised funds for and awareness of this worthwhile charity while achieving my ambition to set a Guinness world record”.
