Running the Great Wall Marathon in Fencing kit: The project

Running the Great Wall Marathon in Fencing kit: The project

Who would be mad enough to run a marathon in fencing kit? Max Titmuss (a  fencer we spotted quite often in the Leon Paul Fencing Centre), apparently. On 1 May 2019, he will be running a full 42km marathon on the Great Wall of China in his Leon Paul Apex fencing kit for charity. Raising money for Ataxia UK, he hopes that something good will come out of this somewhat daft idea. Want to know more (and maybe even support his charity run?) Here's the backstory.

A Leon Paul Fencing Centre Wedding

A Leon Paul Fencing Centre Wedding

December 2016, Emily & I were chasing the Northern Lights on a holiday in Iceland when I asked her to marry me. While the aurora borealis might have escaped us, she said yes. We had to wait to set the date, I didn’t want any clashes with the European or World Championships but following the publication of the international fencing calendar a suitable date was found and the challenge of finding a venue was next.

What a day! What a competition! – My experience at Challenge SNCF Réseau 2018 (Men's epee Worldcup)

Every fencer has it: a personal collection of special moments. A day you'll remember. A match ended with a close win. A competition that leaves not just medals, but memories.

Read on for his full report about his day and how he made it to the podium.  Continue reading →

The month of September traditionally rings the "back to school bell" and marks the start of a new fencing season. In order to get back into the swing of things, we’ve put together our highlights of the past season for you. See it as our extra dose of motivation for the upcoming season and it’s undeniable highlight, the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics! ;) Continue reading →

Running the Great Wall Marathon in fencing kit: the training

Fencer, you remember Max Titmuss and his charity run in a fencing uniform to raise money for Ataxia UK? And not just any run, but the Great Wall Marathon in China? With just one month to go, it's time for an update...   Continue reading →

Walking the fashion show at the FIE anniversary gala (and the idea behind it)

Walking the fashion show at the FIE anniversary gala (and the idea behind it)

Working at Leon Paul definitely comes with unexpected tasks and experiences. If you don’t believe us, just ask our Instagram girl Johanna, whom we sent to Paris this past weekend on a quite extraordinary mission: at the gala held at the Grand Palais in Paris to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the International Fencing Federation, along with World cup fencer (and accidentally also her colleague) James Honeybone; she walked down the runway in what we think is a fencing uniform that could ensure the future of our sport by making it attractive for new audiences. Read all about that unique experience after the jump. Continue reading →
