Man hopes to run 401 marathons

A man who ran his first marathon just three years ago will attempt to run 401 marathons in 401 days.

Benjamin Smith (33) will run the 26.2-mile (42km) distance every single day for just over 13 months to raise funds for anti-bullying and equality causes in the UK.

Mr Smith, from Bristol, is hoping to raise £250,000 (€356,000) for Stonewall and Kidscape as he covers more than 10,000 miles - the equivalent of running from London to Sydney.

He says he was bullied while at school.
