“I seemed to get a lot of paint, which may have had something to do with the mc shouting: ‘There’s the Mayor, get him’ or words to that effect throughout the event.

“It was enormous fun. Those superfit people from the running club looked like they’d taken a gentle stroll, while some of us gasped for air and gulped water down.
