UK runners: is this guy legit? Ben Smith: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-bristol-37553060
He is basically doing the same thing as Rob's 370 marathons.
His Strava profile is private and he has turned off Flyby's: https://www.strava.com/activities/582173429
What is it with Brit runners being scam artists? My BS horn is blaring. That Been Smith guy sounds like an exact copy of Rob Young. We need some boots on the ground when Smith inevitably tries a trans con.
No, this chap is legit.
He posts the routes for ALL his marathons on his website, and people ALWAYS run with him.
Every time he does a marathon the club that is nearby all turn out to run with him.
Ben is NOT a RY, believe me. Look at his page and you can see he never runs these marathons alone.
The 401 challenge.
