Henry Fairey and Tom Coates are taking on the Bath Half Marathon to raise money for CLIC Sargent dressed as a pantomime camel.
The pair have been in training for the challenge of completing the 13.1 mile course on 13 March.
Henry said: “Realising that neither of us have run anything more than about three miles before in our life, the logical decision just seemed to be to make the whole affair much tougher for ourselves and do the run in a pantomime costume!
“We clambered into the costume and went for our first excursion - three times around the sofa in the living room! A couple of things soon became obvious - Tom, being the taller one by about half a foot, was going to have to be the front quarters, but most importantly, neither of us could see anything!
"It was clear the camel needed some surgery so our friend Freya very kindly did some modifications so we can now see where we're going, sort of!
“So far we have taken it for one fairly successful practice run, our family and friends all think we're mad but we are determined to complete it.”
