If you’re a runner, then this is the best news of the day. If you’re not a runner but love Prince Harry, this is also the best news of the day. And even if you don’t love Harry yet (though we’re not sure how that’s possible), all you have to do is watch this video and he’ll have you running on water to get to him at next year’s London Marathon. Oh, and Prince William and Duchess Kate too.
In the latest video for Heads Together, the campaign he started with Will and Kate to raise awareness and provide help for people with mental health challenges, Harry invites runners to help make next year’s London Marathon “the marathon for mental health,” by supporting their anti-stigma campaign. And even for those who don’t run, for whom it would be more of a hobble for those 42-plus kilometres, Harry makes quite a compelling argument and convincing pitch.
“Congratulations if you have got a place in the Virgin Money London Marathon. I hope the first timers amongst you are more excited than scared. If you already have a place and are undecided who to run for, William, Catherine and I would like to invite you to run with Heads Together. The three of us can’t wait to cheer you on. See you at the finish line,” he tells the camera.
The video, which features new footage of the ginger Prince, along with some material you may have seen, is brought to life by Harry’s charm. He seduces us with his voice, his laugh, and even with the headband, he could never lose his nickname, Hot Harry. You ready to run
to for him?
