This morning we got to meet some of the amazing runners attempting to break a Guinness World Record whilst taking on the 26.2 mile Virgin London Marathon course.
For these men and women just running the race isn’t enough of a challenge!
Last year you couldn’t have missed Jean-Paul with his enormous Girraffe costume who broke the record for the tallest costume.
