401 Challenge


Today we had the privilege of supporting Ben Smith on his 401 Challenge, supporting the anti-bullying charities Stonewall and Kidscape. This was his 61st back to back marathon day. We were kind to Ben and managed to put on a sunny autumnal day and a gentle route through Godalming, along the Downs Link to Cranleigh and back.

We had a good group of Waverley Harriers out supporting Ben, with some joining for part of the route. Amazingly two club runners, Claire Campbell and Dave Newby, got carried away and unintentionally joined for the whole thing and completed their first ever marathons!

We wish Ben the best of luck on his continuing challenge. To find out more go to www.the401challenge.co.uk or his facebook page.
