We are very excited to announce that Maxime Delacour, assistant marketing manager at Pink Lady® apples, has signed himself up for the challenge of running the Virgin Money London Marathon in the notorious Pink Lady® apple costume.

This is Maxime’s first marathon, so he is undertaking a rigorous training schedule to prepare him for race day on Sunday 23rd April.

He said: “Having been to the marathon to welcome the runners on behalf of Pink Lady® several times before, I know how positive and infectious the atmosphere is every year on race day. This is what persuaded me to put my name down – to be part of such an amazing event will be a huge life achievement.

“The longest distance I’ve run so far is 20 miles, and this will be my longest stretch before the big day itself. I’ve even done a couple of practice runs in my Pink Lady® costume to fully prepare for the marathon!”

We’ll be cheering Maxime on come race day, and can’t wait to see one of our own crossing the finish line in the famous Pink Lady® costume!
