Ben Smith 401 Challenge

Today we had a visit at school from Ben Smith. Ben is currently just over halfway through his challenge to run 401 marathons in 401 days. He is raising money for the charities Kidscape and Stonewall, both of whom work to combat bullying in schools and society. 

First of all Ben talked to the whole school in assembly about what he is doing and just how far he will be running, he has already run the equivalent of Rainham to San Francisco.

After assembly he went onto our field and ran round with members of our running club.

Ben was quite inspiring to talk to and the distances and time he has and will put in to this challenge are staggering.

Also, keep an eye out in the Kent Messenger for pictures and three of our children were interviewed for KM FM which was broadcast through the afternoon on Tuesday.
