401 Challenge Inspirational Talk (University of Winchester)
Ben Smith, 401 Marathon Man, is undertaking a 'World Record' attempt to run 401 marathons back-to-back in different locations across the UK. The challenge will aim to raise both awareness of the issues of bullying in our society along with £250,000 for 'Stonewall’ and ‘Kidscape’, two amazing charities dedicated to tackling bullying.
On Wednesday 28th September, Ben will be giving an inspiring talk to university students, staff and colleagues from local schools, colleges and other Hampshire organisations, just ahead of his 394th marathon across Winchester. Ben will discuss how his own personal experiences of bullying, coming to terms with his sexual orientation and finding a love for running motivated him to take on this immense challenge.
Tickets to the talk are free however the 401 Challenge Team welcome donations to support them in reaching their £250,000 fundraising target.
