Canning Conveyor's Tumbleator In London Marathon Events

News Image
The Tumbleator was used in two London Marathon events.

The first, where Canning Conveyor supplied a 6m Tumbleator, was 'The Abbotts World Marathon Majors Challenge' at The Virgin Money London Marathon Exhibition at the ExCel held during April 2017. This was an indoor event, where participants were challenged to run 400 metres at the pace of Eliud Kipchoge and Mary Keitany, the winners of the Abbott's World Marathon to see if they could keep up with them.

In the second event, Canning Conveyor supplied a 9m Tumbleator at The Vitality Westminster Mile, an outdoor event at Green Park in London on Sunday 28 May where over 10,000 participants took part. The theme at the Vitality Wellness Festival in Green Park is 'goal setting'. To compliment this, the Vitality hashtag is #MyNextGoal.

The Tumbleator incorporated this theme with three challenges running throughout the day. Participants took on a challenge and used #MyNextGoal as part of their attempt at the activity.
The challenges were:

• Attempt 1 minute on the Tumbleator at World Record pace: (Men's WR speed is 12.7mph & Women's WR is 11.3mph).

• Take on the speed challenge: attempt a 1 minute interval on the Tumbleator at ever increasing speed (incremental speed appropriate for age).

• To run with a loved one for 1 minute.

Joe Carter, London Marathon, commented: "The Tumbleator was the perfect activation to drive buzz around the Vitality festival. The crowds built in no time eager to take on their personal challenge and defeat the clock, with Corey and track mafia providing the perfect atmosphere and tempo to the activity. It was easily the most popular area within the park, and the runners kept coming long after the end of the event. This was our second use of the Tumbleator and it is fast becoming our favourite activity."
