Ep 268 - How to run London in a 130lb diving suit with Lloyd Scott
Apr 25, 2021 Episode 268
Jody Raynsford & David Hellard

Anyone who has ever watched the London Marathon will remember the guy who ran it in a diving suit. Mainly because they're still covering his progress three days after the event has finished.

But that guy is Lloyd Scott, and running London in a diving suit is just one in an incredible career of ridiculous challenges Lloyd has undertaken all in the name of charity.

As well as jaunts to most other major marathons in his diving suit, Lloyd has also run an entire marathon underwater in Loch Ness, has run London as St George AND a dragon and Indiana Jones being chased by a boulder, Brian the Snail from The Magic Roundabout, The Beatles in their Yellow Submarine and as the Iron Giant.

But he's also doing some seriously extreme expeditions to the North Pole, South Pole, cycling a penny farthing 3,000 miles across Australia and walked Land's End to John O'Groats with a life-size T-rex.

Jody and David speak to Lloyd about where it all started, what his best and worst challenges are, how he comes up with the ideas and why he feels the need to challenge himself this way.

Enjoy!
