Sumo Run Ireland currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most people dressed as sumo wrestlers, after breaking the previous record during the first run in 2015. Those taking part this year are encouraged to raise sponsorship to support families affected by cancer, through the work of Purple House Cancer Support.
Entry fees start from €40 and participants can sign up at www.sumorun.ie
(your sumo suit is then yours to keep!) Aspiring sumos of all ages are welcome, and children must be above 1.2 metres in height to participate
