Look Out Edinburgh - The Sumos are Coming!

The Sumo Run is back for 2015 and bigger, sillier and wobblier than ever before!

Following the success of last year's Sumo Run, we have decided to do it all again! 


In 2013, we saw a fantastic number of super Sumos running, walking, waddling and wobbling around London's Battersea Park, and managed to raise an incredible amount to further Link's work. As well as this, we all managed to have a damn good time taking part in the mass-inflation, aerobic warm-up and generally being and looking very silly on a beautiful sunny day!

So we're back in Battersea Park race, this time on Sunday the 27th July, with registration and pre-race tomfoolery to take place at the Band-Stand. We have already recruited a bunch of amazing Sumo runners, just itching to get their hands on those all-important suits - don't you just want to be one of them?

Preparations for the Sumo Run 2014 are well underway here at Sumo HQ, and we just can't wait to don those suits, set to inflate, and spread the Sumo love! This is truly the best way to put the 'fun' firmly back into fun-run, and above all, helps us to raise money for a fantastic cause - see you there!
