WADAC are hosting Run #394 of the 401 challenge on 28th Sept

The 401 challenge is Ben Smith running 401 marathons on 401 consecutive days to raise awareness about bullying and to raise money for his two chosen charities Stonewall and Kidscape.  It's all explained on his website http://www.the401challenge.co.uk/ but the important thing is that we at WADAC are hosting him for his marathon #394 (yes he has already covered over 10,000miles) on 28/9/16. 

The day splits neatly into five parts (times & distances are approximate):
08.30  talk by Ben up at the University SO22 4NR
10.00  6.5 mile parade lap of Winchester incl a lap of our track
11.45  8.5 miles pre-lunch
13.30  lunch
14.15  10.8 miles post lunch finishing back at the University about 16.00
If you can come along to accompany him on this run (even for just a part of it) then you'd be very welcome. It will be social running around the water meadows (ie flat) and the pace is not fast (maybe 10 min/mile). 
If possible we would like there to be WADAC runners present at all times so if you can only pop out in a lunchbreak or in the afternoon then you'd be very welcome to come and freshen up the conversation!

If you plan to come along it would help if you could let me know so I have an idea of numbers and coverage, equally if you have further questions do get in touch
