British singer Will Young proved his dedication to training for the upcoming London marathon by running across the U.K. capital to reach the Brit Awards ceremony last month (Feb11).
The Leave Right Now hitmaker is preparing to jog 26.4 miles (42.2 kilometres) on 17 April (11) in aid of Catch22, a British charity which helps disadvantaged youngsters.
Young has been fitting in his training around work trips to places including Los Angeles and southern Africa - and even donned his running gear to dash to the annual Brit Awards prizegiving at the O2 Arena in south-east London.
He tells Bbc Breakfast, "I was in L.A. and then I was on a charity visit in Zambia and Namibia, so it's been a balancing act (work and training)...
"Even for the Brits, I was doing an award, and I ran to the O2 from home. You can do it, I just look a bit odd when I turn up in Lycra. People did look at me and say, 'That's a strange outfit Will, running leggings'."
