The Out Of The Blue 10k & 5k offers the rare opportunity to run in the unique setting of Ashburnham Place, near Battle. The multi-terrain route will take in some of the 220-acre grounds, which are rich in wildlife. Parts of the ground have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its valuable flora and fauna.

Out Of The Blue is a fund-raising body established in memory of Will Beckett who took his own life at Beachy Head in January 2013, at the age of 42. The tragedy came as an incredible shock for his family and friends - it simply came 'Out Of The Blue'.

The event aims to raise funds for three charities which helped Will's family and friends in the immediate aftermath of his death. The charities are Winston's Wish, Dragonflies, and The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team. Out of the Blue raises money to support these charities so that they can continue to help others. You can find details of how each charity helped Will's family and you can also donate to Out of the Blue on their Virgin Money page.

The event will also be raising funds for CALM - The Campaign Against Living Miserably, a registered charity, which exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. In 2013, male suicide accounted for 78% of all suicides and it is the single biggest cause of death in men aged 20-45. CALM seek to prevent male suicide by offering support to men in the UK, of any age, who are down or in crisis via their helpline website. They push for changes in policy and practice, so that suicide is better prevented.

It is hoped that this running event will attract families, with races staged over both 5k and 10k as well as children's races.

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.
