401 Marathons in 401 Days

Can any Hastings Runners help out here: Benjamin Smith, a runner from Bristol, is part way through running a marathon everyday for something like 401 consecutive days. He will be in Hastings on Monday 19th October, circa 10.00am start from Grosvenor Gardens when he will set off to undertake the Hastings Half twice and thus his marathon for the day!

Ben would like company, and undoubtedly deserves company, (possibly attention from a white jacket clad medical consultant also you might think) on the run on the Monday, maybe for all of it, but, realistically, if runners can join him on parts of the run it would be much appreciated. I am assured it will be nothing like fast and I think that’s a fair likelihood given his tireless programme. A gentle jog is envisaged.

Please support if you can, run for half an hour, or one hour, whatever you can spare. Turn up at the Half-Marathon start on 19th Oct. at 10.00am and look for a tired but optimistic runner, introduce yourself and join him, hopefully others also.
