The Spare Time Stuff

Ben’s passion and drive for business is evident in his personal life too. A highly competitive triathlete, Ben has participated in the London Triathlon (the worlds largest) and what is regarded the hardest Half-Ironman on Exmoor, he has also competed in the Hell Runner up north, Mountain Mayhem 24 hour challenge, Lands End to John O Groats, 24 hour 3 peaks challenge and the London Marathon. He aims to compete in the full M Dot Ironman, and naturally has chosen the worlds toughest, which takes place in Lanzarote.

There are many others challenges which he has entered too, Thunder Run, 24 hour solo run challenge & the New Forest Tri. Aside from these massive tests of endurance, Ben is a Chartered Marketer and mentors local and national SME’s through the minefield of marketing, trained in Kick Boxing, Jiu Jitsu & Judo marital arts and finally looking to learn the art of Karate.

“Training for endurance events is great for focusing the mind, it allows me the opportunity to think clearly.  The majority of my problem solving takes place whilst I am training. I find it far easier to work through things when I am on the move. Exercise is a fantastic motivator, it’s a great way to remain positive and pass on that energy to others” says Ben.
