401 : The Extraordinary Story of the Man Who Ran 401 Marathons in 401 Days and Changed His Life Forever Paperback
by Ben Smith
The inspiring story of Ben Smith - who ran 401 marathons in 401 days with minimal support, to raise money for Stonewall and Kidscape. On 1 September 2015, Ben Smith set out from Bristol.
Over the next 401 days, he would burn an estimated 2.4 million calories; run with almost 10,000 people; inspire almost 600 first-time marathon runners and visit 101 schools.
He would also raise in excess of Â£325,000 for charity. In between, Ben fractured his back; was almost blown away by a hurricane on the Gower Peninsula; kissed his boyfriend Kyle live on TV during the London Marathon; took 10 days off after discovering his spine was collapsing; spent the next 117 days playing catch-up. And he wouldnâ€™t have changed a thing.
