London Marathon Fancy Dress Ideas

As if running one of the most popular marathons in the world weren’t enough, lots of people opt to do it in fancy dress – something we applaud wholeheartedly. Not only is it commendable to run such a distance at all, but in fancy dress it is probably a little harder – and looks a lot better!

The trick with running such a long distance in fancy dress is to choose an outfit that’s not too bulky or heavy, and preferably as close to your normal running kit as possible… or at least something you can wear your normal running kit under. Here are our top picks:

Morphsuits

The obvious choice, don’t you think? You might end up having to break a hole in the face to allow better air access, but being skintight, something like this shouldn’t hamper your running efforts too much – and if you choose a funny character one, should be quite amusing for spectators and other runners!

Superheroes

There’s just something about running around with a cape billowing out behind you, don’t you think? Again, a lot of superhero costumes are fairly tight so won’t get in your way – and if you wanted, you could wear just the cape with your normal running gear underneath.

A Marathon Runner

Durr, yes, we know if you’re running the London Marathon you’re already technically a marathon runner – but this costume is so easy to wear over existing running gear! Aside from the bright red heels, which you might find a little hard to run in, the rest of the outfit makes a pretty good marathon fancy dress costume!

A Zombie

Well, you know how we love zombies! Not necessarily the most practical of costumes, but we just love the idea of a sea of people running over London Bridge with a zombie or two running after their brains! The beauty of this costume is that you can do as much or as little as you want – full face of makeup, crazy outfit, or just some fake blood and effects over your existing running kit.

A Lego Man

Ok, hands up, this is probably the least practical marathon fancy dress outfit there is – but it’s the one most likely to get you chatting to one of the BBC reporters on your way round, if that’s your thing! You’re also likely to end up in several newspapers’ “great fancy dress outfits from the London Marathon” features the following day. If you want to get your (lego) face in the paper, this is the fancy dress costume for you!

 

If you’re running the London Marathon this year, good luck! Enjoy the incredible atmosphere of one of the most popular, prestigious races on Earth – an awesome day out, whether you’re in fancy dress or not!
