London Marathon in a Gherkin costume

Updated: May 12


Go Gherkin!

What can you make when you’ve finished your equatorium?  Easy: a model of a famous building to use as a marathon costume!


Regular readers of this blog may have noticed a reduced frequency of posts, and none at all where I’m making things, during the last few months.  That’s because most of my creative energies have gone into making this 8-foot Gherkin costume.


I’ll be running the London Marathon in it.  I’m doing this to raise funds for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust – a charity which works to support research into this horrible condition.


Confused?  Check out https://sebfalk.wixsite.com/gogherkin.  There I’ve explained why I’m running in aid of Parkinson’s research, and why I chose to run as the Gherkin.  You can also see pictures of the costume under construction, and find out more about the marathon challenge (I’m hoping to run it in 3:15-3:30, despite the costume’s weight (5 kg) and wind resistance!


If you’d like to sponsor me and support Parkinson’s research, please go to www.justgiving.com/gogherkin.  But not before you’ve watched the video below.  Whether you find it motivational or just plain ridiculous, I hope you enjoy it – and if you do, please share it!
