Ben believes the connections you can make from running is the most important part.
“I love running, and I wanted it to help other people and learn more from them. Meeting people who are different to you is so important, and as we get older, we tend to stick to our groups but there are so many more people around. It’s good to be exposed to people who have different beliefs, points of view, or just a fresh way of thinking.”
Over the past three years, Ben and the Zone Blue community have raised over $60,000 for Movember’s annual fundraising campaign.
"We take part annually to help change the face of men’s health, raising funds and awareness for mental health and suicide prevention, prostate and testicular cancer."
Ben loves discovering new spots to run around the city but says the Wellington Waterfront is one of his favourites.
“I love running along the waterfront, there is something so tranquil about running beside the water. I like discovering new places as well, I like a little adventure. This wonderful city is full of trails, you can get lost on them for hours.”
