Taking place across the weekend, the festival sees over 40 fit fundraisers running in aid of the charity whose volunteer lifeboat crew members rescued 719 people and saved 18 lives in Dorset and Hampshire last year.

Well-known solo ocean sailor Steve White, who lives with his family in Dorset, visited the RNLI’s charity marquee in Bournemouth Gardens. He said: ‘It’s a vibrant atmosphere in Bournemouth today and it’s been great to see some of the RNLI’s fundraisers arriving with their medals. The RNLI is such a worthy cause to support through events such as these.

‘I wish all the best to the RNLI supporters running over the weekend.’

There are plenty more fundraising events for those inspired to run for the RNLI including this November’s Reindeer Run. Sign up to take part at RNLI.org.uk/reindeerrun and choose from 1k, 5k and 10k.

Ranked one of the world’s top sailors, Steve White has competed in some of the most challenging offshore races in the world, including the Vendée Globe where he finished eighth out of a starting line-up of 30 skippers. After the 2016 Vendee Globe, Steve will embark on Westabout, known as the toughest challenge in sailing, where he will sail non-stop, solo around the world the wrong way against the prevailing winds and currents in the Southern Ocean.
