The original! My first attempt to complete the Dublin Marathon in costume

2010 - Big Brobot

Dónal Troddyn Marathon Costumes

In 2010, I lost a bet and ended up running a half marathon in a robot costume inspired by a software project I was working on at the time, Big Brobot. At the end of the race, a buddy said:

Yeah, but it's only a half marathon....

That was the beginning of a decade of costumed marathons, beginning with the 2010 Dublin Marathon.
