Alexi Duggins, Editor-At Large of Time Out, destroys Octoberfest Pub’s Double Knuckle Challenge

On 1 May, we will be joining Time Out’s Editor-At-Large who is scarfing down ten London food challenges in the next ten weeks. Alexi Duggins is calling it his “food marathon,” because instead of running 26 miles, he will be gorging on 26,000 calories.

Duggins may look skinny, but he’s a beast. He has demolished a two-foot-long sausage roll at the County Arms in three minutes and one second (that’s five seconds off the record!); the Meat Liquor Triple Chilli Challengea spicy, 3,420-calorie meal – within ten minutes; and a two-kilo calzone in 28 minutes.

Follow him on Twitter @Alexiduggins; he will be tweeting about his challenges with the hashtag #BoyvsFood.
