The folks behind new charity Sack Race know the way to our hearts – with good will and good puns – and we’re 100% behind them on their mission to ‘give cancer a kick in the balls’. They’re calling for the capital’s ballsiest people to run a marathon with a twist on April 7. Starting at Big Ben, they’ll tackle London’s rudest streets (think Shaftesbury Avenue, Cock Lane, St John’s Wood and Belsize Park). The phallic fun doesn’t stop there as the route is the shape of a massive penis and participants will be bouncing, running and crawling while taking turns to wear a giant hairy scrotum-like sack costume. Organiser Phil Ball (!) said ‘It might seem a bit childish to be hopping around London in a giant ballbag, but it is going to be really physically and mentally demanding…In an event such as this, you need to have great physical stamina and not mind looking, quite literally, like a giant dick.’ This deserves a donation, just for the penile effort alone. Sponsor them and head down to show your support.
