Yorkshire lad Ben Davis will set off for the run of his life on Yorkshire day (1st August) next week. He’ll be doing a lap of Yorkshire which works out at 470 miles and incorporates over 41,000 ft of elevation, which is more that Mount Everest!
He’s undertaking this mammoth task to raise money for CALM (campaign against living miserably – a charity leading a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK) and you can track his progress with the hashtag #runningyorkshire on social media.
