CHRISTMAS TURKEYS LIVES COMMEMORATED THROUGH MARATHON
Written by Lola Narawa on December 8, 2022
Rory Cockshaw, 21, an animal rights campaigner from Bristol, was inspired to take on the almost eight-hour race after meeting a ‘gorgeous’ turkey called Harriet.
Rory, who will wear a hat shaped as a turkey for the challenge, said he hopes to help people to “realize that veganism is possible” after going animal-free himself in 2020 – which prompted many of his family members to follow suit shortly after.
Rory will be running from dawn till dusk in remembrance of the Turkeys who lost their lives for Christmas lunch this year.
Rory said: “There’s a group of us running throughout the day, some just for part of the marathon, some walking and others are taking on the full seven hours and 49 minutes.
“I’ll be running from dawn to dusk in my turkey hat in memory of all the animals who will be killed this Christmas.”
