The 401 Festival of Running – PORTISHEAD

Many of you may have heard of the story of Ben Smith (go and read Ben’s story if you haven’t yet!) and his 401 Marathons in 401 days.

Now, local guy Ben runs the 401 foundation, there to raise money and to help others who have struggled with bullying and been left feeling down in the dumps. Their focus is how running, and generally leading a healthy lifestyle can pick you up when you’re feeling down and help you achieve things you never thought possible!


On the 25th & 26th August, the 401 foundation are hosting the Festival of Running – a collective of fun races to help raise some money and awareness of the cause. The best news? It’s taking place in PORTISHEAD!!
