Norman Cook/Fatboy Slim runs Brighton Half

Norman Cook aka DJ Fatboy Slim was the official starter at Brighton Half Marathon a couple of weeks ago (27 February 2017). After blowing the klaxon to set more than  8000 runners on their way, Norman ran the race himself, finishing in 1.49.22

Cook is a keen runner and has been a regular at the event in the past few years, think this was a PB for him, with previous times including:

2016 2.02
2015 1.53
2014 1.56

He's also run Royal Parks Half a couple of times to raise money for Young Epilepsy

There's always been a sporting side to Norman, I saw him DJ at Brixton Academy in 1999 when he and Armand Van Helden staged a soundclash from a boxing ring in the middle of the dancefloor
