A young composer from Kingston, London is undertaking the challenge of his life and running 7 marathons in 7 days, culminating in the London Marathon on 23 April- to raise money for Creative Youth, the arts charity that delivers Kingston’s International Youth Arts Festival.
Greg Harradine, 29, a Kingston University music graduate who is usually to be found at the piano, is completing each marathon run in approximately 4 hours per day. The first 6 of Greg’s marathons follow the 150-mile London Outer Orbital Path (the LOOP), known as the “M25 for walkers.”

Greg will be joined on the final day for the London Marathon by our Festival Director, Andy Currums, who is also running to raise money for the charity.
Andy said: “The money raised will help Creative Youth and the International Youth Arts Festival continue to support young people as they move into this big, scary world and help build international, border-less relationships built on creativity, passion and a common goal that celebrates our differences.”
