Delivering talks has become a passion of mine and I can't think of anything better than sharing my story with people and showing them that no matter what happens in our past, we can achieve anything we want in life.

At the 401 Challenge, we deliver inspiring talks that are designed to resonate with audiences of all ages, from 4 to 104 years old.


Whether we're engaging with primary school children, inspiring secondary school students, connecting with college and university audiences, or partnering with corporate organisations, our goal is to ignite a spark of motivation and resilience in everyone we meet.

Our talks are more than just stories; they're journeys of personal growth, overcoming adversity, and the power of the human spirit. We share our experiences, challenges, and triumphs to connect with our audiences on a deeply emotional level. Ben’s story of running 401 marathons in 401 days is a testament to the incredible heights that can be achieved through dedication, grit, and unwavering determination.

The outcomes of our talks are as diverse as the audiences we engage with.


  • For young children, it's about instilling a sense of self-belief, teaching them that no dream is too big, and no challenge too daunting.

  • For secondary school students, we encourage them to embrace their uniqueness and stand up against bullying.

  • In colleges and universities, our message is one of resilience and determination as they navigate the complexities of higher education.

  • In corporate organisations, we inspire teams to push beyond their limits, fostering a culture of excellence and mental well-being.

Ultimately, our talks are a conduit for personal growth, motivation, and self-improvement, regardless of age or background.


We aim to leave everyone with a lasting impression, empowering them to chase their dreams, overcome adversity, and become the best version of themselves.

So far, we have delivered  736 talks   and inspired  279,972  people! 

Thank you for considering the 401 Challenge for your event; we can't wait to inspire and connect with you!
