This October, British Wildlife Photographer Paul Goldstein will run his 19th marathon in his now fabled bengal tiger suit. The Wimbledon-based conservationist completed Brighton in Sept., and London will be his last in the UK. However, in May, the 58-year-old goes to Nepal to take on the formidable Everest marathon before finally retiring the ten-feet-high suit. Paul as raised over £250,000 for a number of causes in and around Bandhavgarh National Park in India. The worth more alive campaign started on the streets of London eleven years ago, since then, the tiger has run in three continents and conquered Kilimanjaro. Paul says: "People ask me if running marathons like the incredibly supported London one hurts, of course it does, but it is nothing to what tigers have had to endure.”
