Lancashire County Council have agreed to name a section of the Guild Wheel, a section he ran many times, after Ben. The section is 2.5km long and stretches from the entrance to Miller Park by the Continental and goes on to the docks, running alongside the River Ribble.
On July 1st the section will be unveiled in Ben’s memory and a music and food event will follow at the Continental. Local runners are being asked to don their running gear at this event and take part in a 2.5km dash to honour Ben on this section of the Guild Wheel.
All proceeds from this event will go to Rosemere.
