Members of Bridlington Road Runners met him on the seafront to join him as he ran two laps of the town’s half marathon course.

Ben, from Bristol, completed the same route when he first visited Bridlington back in February.

Today was his 255th day of running and so far he has covered more than 6,500 miles.
