Throughout, Smith has battled injuries including a longstanding spinal problem and pain in his kneecaps, heels and shins. This meant he had to take a 10-day break – but he ran extra miles each day after the break to get back to his 401-day schedule.

This record will stand forever. I think he is going to need the rest of live to rest up from this one. Is he is walking condition right now?

Lance Armstrong is a disgraced doper. This guy is awesome. Don't shame him by putting him in that same category.

Smith’s mother, Beverley Smith, said: “It has always been a pleasure to be Ben’s mum but it is just awesome today. I don’t think anyone has written the words to describe how we feel so we decided that a new feeling has come on the market called 401. We feel 401.
