The Stag Company - Stag Weekends from the experts

The Stag Company's “Manwich Challenge”

They say it can't be done, but The Stag Company's very-own Tom Coulson will attempt to eat the equivalent of 10 foot-long sandwiches for Comic Relief, in conjunction with Subway.

Party expert, Tom, has an hour and a half to consume this man-sized treat, in a marathon binge on Friday 18th March. Tom, who stands at 6 foot 5, is giving up his entire week's calorie intake all in the name of Comic Relief and you can donate here at our Just Giving page.

Subway's Regional Office scoffed,

"No human could possibly eat that much sandwich in one sitting. You'll be clearing up vomit all day."

The equivalent of 10 feet in sandwiches stand between Tom and his goal, but he's got form,

"I've been kicked out of the odd Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet in my time, so I'm not nervous. You'll all be laughing when I'm hungry an hour later." He said.

Rob Hill, Managing Director of the Stag Company was moved by Tom's charitable spirit,

"This is Tom's LiveAid and we're all behind him... he's made some big claims and he's got to back them up come Friday."

Tom's feast will be comprised of a full range of different flavours from Subway's menu and will test Tom's stamina and commitment and could even see him waddling into the record books. There's no registered world record for Subway Foot-long sandwich consumption (that we could find in 5 minutes on Google), so there's alot on the line.

Tom’s Sandwich of choice is: 3ft Giant Sub – Italian Herb & Cheese Bread, Roast Chicken filling with “standard salad” (Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumber, Green Pepper, Red Onion and a little Light Mayonnaise).

We'd like to thank Subway's Shoreham-by-Sea branch for their kind donation of the 3ft Giant Sub. Keep it here at the Stag Company blog for more news on this noble quest.
