Tower Bridge

Brewer Charlie Long has plenty of bottle, that’s for sure. The Wimbledon Brewery employee not only completed the gruelling 26-mile London Marathon course on Sunday April 24, but also set a new Guinness World Record for the ‘fastest time dressed as a bottle’.

The 29-year old completed the punishing event in just three hours, nine minutes and 37 seconds, annihilating the previously held record by more than five minutes.

Mr Long, said: “It was my third marathon, but the first I’ve done in a stupid outfit! “It got a bit hot in the costume during training but thankfully on the day the conditions were cool. Of course I celebrated my achievement at the end with one or two pints of Wimbledon Brewery Common Ale!”
