The Great Wall of China, British 10k, Run to the Beat half marathon all pale in comparison to my next big challenge… Marrying Scarlett Johansson… Before that though I’m going to run the London Marathon to get in shape to impress her and stuff…

In all seriousness on 13th April I will be running the London Marathon 26.2 miles of endurance and perseverance and I’m doing this for two amazing charities Give Aid Direct & Health Poverty Action.

Give Aid Direct is a new charity set up by those who have worked directly with communities on the ground and have identified ways in which we can support real and unique people. Find out more here:

As you all know from my work and the campaigns I pester you with these issues are very close to my heart and I’m honoured to represent them during the race.

In the run up I’m aiming to raise £1,000 to split between the two to support their vital work. Any donations or support would be amazing & eternally appreciated.

Well done Ben! I know I'm somewhat belated BUT better late than never eh...?? It also meant I got to equate the amount I donate to the time you ran.... I wish you'd been faster :p
