British Based US Wrestler Tex Benedict To Run The London Marathon

For Immediate Release

Tex Benedict to run the London Marathon

On April 23rd 2006, Thousands of runners will embark on the capital city of England to run for 26 miles. One of those thousands will be the British based American professional wrestler Tex Benedict. Tex will be competing in this mammoth sporting event in his full wrestling gear, and will be raising money for the Jewish National Fund.

This will be the first full marathon that Tex has competed in, and he has begun his training already. Tex will continue to wrestle during his marathon training and will aim to look to the fans of professional wrestling to help him raise funds.

Donations can be made either in person at a show, or through a website, which is in the process of being set up. Due to financial implications placed upon the fundraiser, there will be a minimum donation of £10. Whilst I appreciate this is not a small sum of money, all of the funds raised will be donated to charity, and Tex himself will not make a penny.

Tex has always harboured ambitions to run a full marathon, and whilst when living in America, the New York marathon was more likely, since relocating to London, he has set his sights on the most famous race in the World. Can Tex win this race? Well, in his own words…”I have no chance of winning the race”, but will Tex finish the race…”I am 100% determined to complete the race”. Realism and determination are two of the traits that have helped Tex along his way in training so far, and he can’t wait for the actual day of the marathon…” I can’t wait for April 23rd, 2006”.

With Tex’s wrestling diary already getting busy for 2006, you will have to catch this marathon man very quickly, before he gets fully booked up. With press appearances, merchandise release dates, including the exclusive “Fan’s choice” T shirt and action figures as well as marathon training, this could well be the busiest year for Tex Benedict!

If you wish to make a donation, wish Tex good luck, show him your support and cheer him on during the marathon itself, or even have Tex appear on your wrestling show, radio show, newsletter or website, then please get in touch. Tex is running the marathon…..the London marathon….and this time, he is not in Arizona!

All contact to be made through Tex Benedict’s official website:

Tex can be contacted on for all enquiries regarding this press release.

Everyone here at Wrestling101 would like to wish Tex Benedict good luck for when he runs The London Marathon.
