Of course, I’m pretty sure that most serious runners do not do fancy dress when pushing for PBs or wins. But, do you ever run in fancy dress, either for fun running or to raise money for charity?
The reason I ask is because I’ve done two runs in fancy dress this year.
The Color Run UK back in July:
And at the Zombie Night Run on Saturday:
And I’ll admit that neither of these were timed runs. Nor did I run fast (or rather fast for me) in either of these runs.
When I run more seriously, I don’t wear fancy dress. Usually this is because I am pushing myself a little more, and trying to run as best as I can.
Our next race is the Mo-Run in November, and right now I’m planning to run it semi-dressed up: maybe digging my lime green wig out, and donning a mustachioed t shirt 😉
What do you think about running in fancy dress? Yay or nay?
If you think ‘yay’ do you do any training runs in costume?
