Ben’s 7 in 7 – 7 Marathons in 7 Days

7 Marathons in 7 days (7 in 7)
Ben Brindley on his challenge – 7 in 7 Days

Our Very Own Ben Brindley is be taking on his biggest challenge yet, his  7 in 7- seven marathons in 7 days – to raise money for Buxton Mountain Rescue Team.

Ben, believes the work the team does is amazing and wants to help them out by raising money and awareness.

Ben said: “They are an emergency service but rely solely on donation. I have always given to the charity as an insurance policy but now I want to do more.

Previously, Ben had run in a week was 73 miles, but completing the 26.2 miles of a marathon every day, (the 7 in 7) will take his total up to more than 180.

He said:

“I became a dad seven months ago and my running took a back seat, so it is going to be really hard to push myself to that kind of distance but it will be worth it.”

As a father working for himself, Ben did not want his challenge to take him too far away from home – so he will be running around the Peak District between Sunday June 11 and Saturday June 18.

Ben is a member of Tideswell Running Club and will be shadowed by some of his running buddies.

“I have timed it so there will be days when I am running when the club is on, and will do the last five miles with them which will be great,” he said.
