The 401 Festival of Running – Sunday
Portishead, South West, United Kingdom

Starting on 1st September 2015, Ben Smith famously set off on a journey of a lifetime to complete 401 marathons in 401 consecutive days. His feat made headline news and as well as encouraging almost 10,000 runners to share in his journey, Ben raised over 330,000 for two anti bullying charities and raised the much needed awareness of bullying in the UK.

Ben's adventure may be over, but his journey is not complete and the work continues to carry on the legacy of The 401 Challenge. The setup of The 401 Foundation which offers grants to grassroots projects that focus their efforts on building confidence and self esteem along with tackling mental health and self development issues for all ages is that legacy.

So, why not join us for the return of this fantastic event and get involved with The 401 Foundation through their second Festival of Running? The Festival will in the spirit of The 401 Challenge, appeal to runners and non runners, of all ages, sizes and abilities. With a choice of races for the youngsters as well as 5k, 10k and half marathon distances available. Why not test yourself and take on The 401 Foundation Challenge and complete a series of four distance events including the 401 6.1km to complete the marathon distance. You will also receive a special challenge medal! All routes take place in and around the beautiful location of Portishead near Bristol, Ben's home town.

The Saturday event will kick off with the 401 5k, followed by The 401 500m, The 401 One Mile Dash and The 401 Half Marathon. Followed by The 401 After Party, with food and music! Come dressed in your favourite bright clothes and light accessories to help illuminate the course! The brighter the better, be creative!

The Maverick inov-8 X & Ultra Snowdonia
Caernarfon, Wales, United Kingdom

We welcome you to a whole new series; the Maverick Inov-8 X Series events are designed to test your resolve and take you to the upper limits of your abilities. We venture to The Snowdonia National Park known as Eryri in Welsh, a name that can be translated as the place of the eagles.

The Maverick inov-8 Snowdonia X-series and Ultra event is quickly becoming a notorious event within the UKs Trail running calendar. To keep up with the reputation of our Snowdonia event being the toughest in the area weve added a brand new ultra-distance route that will see the most bold of trail runners cover over 60km of Snowdonias finest Trails and summit from both the Llanberis and Miners track.

In the destination venue of Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, there is never any guarantee of the weather, but what is always promised is the most extraordinary trail running up and around the surrounding area of the formidable 1085m peak of Snowdon itself.

All four routes of or Snowdon X-series event start in the village of Llanberis and immediately take you up the well-known Llanberis Path towards the Summit. All routes are challenging and technical, but with grit and determination they are achievable and will leave you with the most fulfilling sense of accomplishment.

For many of our runners our Snowdon X-series event is quite literally the peak of their season. In past years as runners come back through the Village of Llanberis to cross the Maverick finish line we see tears of complete fatigue and overwhelming happiness due to these runners pushing themselves to their own personal limits to complete this extraordinary event.

Ron Skilton Memorial Half Marathon
Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales, United Kingdom

Following the sad death of our Treasurer and good friend, Ron Skilton, to Motor Neurone Disease in December 2005, this event was added to our Green Events calendar. In his younger years Ron was a keen runner and cyclist so we felt that a half marathon would be a fitting tribute and a way to remember him and celebrate his life.

The route for the half marathon is a figure of 8, mainly off-road and approx 13 miles long. The scenery is magnificent and the course challenging as the area is mountainous. Feedback from previous years is that it is great fun, well marked and marshalled, and people are keen to come back and do it again!
