SUPERMAN’S super-speed might put him at a distinct advantage as he competes in the Rock Run this month.
British actor Henry Cavill, who starred as Superman in the 2013 film Man of Steel, will run alongside his Royal Marine brother for the military group’s 350th anniversary celebrations.
Cavill, who is currently working on two Superman spin-off films, is also ambassador for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
He has said he is ‘honoured’ to be a part of the weekend’s celebrations, with the run taking place on October 25.
“I will remember this day fondly and probably with a little bit of physical discomfort, which only seems fitting considering what this day represents,” he added.
Lieutenant Colonel Nik Cavill, the actor’s brother, will also take part in the 5km uphill climb, accompanied by 40 other competitors.
Event organiser Alan Hardy said he is ‘delighted’ that Cavill is joining in the celebrations and hopes the British actor enjoys ‘what Gibraltar has to offer’.
