Marathon runner Joseph Tame, wearing his "iRun" apparatus, stretches prior to a test run in Tokyo on Friday. Tame, 33, of Hereford, England, intends to take part in Sunday's Tokyo marathon with his self-made mobile social media studio called "iRun," equipped with four iPhones, an iPad, two Android handsets, a weather center pinned on his helmet and a heart monitor with a GPS, to give viewers a real-time experience of the marathon on his website www.tm2011.com.

Many people run marathons in costumes(sometimes as part of a group), and some are actually pretty good runners.

Agree with Paulinusa.

That is quiet a bit of extra weight and encumbrance added there. Either way if he is having fun.

He even has a chimpira chaperone to clear the streets for him, he must be important.

Now this man look like a real buffoon. What's the betting he's got some "hilarious" giant glasses at home?

Whats the point? Just to have fun? Can think of a million better ways to have fun and not look like a total dork.

That seems like too much equipment. Four iPhones? Seems like it would be pretty difficult to text and run. Anyway, it's pretty imaginative!
