A zorbing marathon is happening in London this summer

Isabelle Aron

Always wanted to run a marathon but can't be bothered with all that training? We've got a solution for you. An alternative kind of marathon is coming to London this summer, where your feet won't even need to touch the ground. The world's first zorbing 'marathon' will be taking place on the Southbank on July 16 and 17. Well, it's kind of a marathon. It's being organised by Bounce Energy Balls, which will be inviting Londoners to roll around in a zorb ball on a track alongside the river as many times as they like. The track will be in place for two days and London's total mileage will be tallied up, before the the zorbs go on tour around the UK. Whichever city manages to clock up the most miles will be named the UK's zorbing champion, which is obviously a highly sought-after accolade, so put some effort in, folks.

Don't fancy zorbing? You'll soon be able to do a spin class on a bus.
