A French national living in Kensal Rise is up for his second marathon run this month, this time to promote a charity closer to home.

Alban Millas, from Leighton Road, is promoting his thanks to the Brent Centre for Young People for the chance to run the London Marathon on April 23.

The 42-year old heard about the charity through his membership with the Queen’s Park Harriers, a running group who have organised the Mini London Marathon trails on behalf of Brent Council.

They will be supervising children running their race from Blackfriars Bridge to the Mall before the adults take off after trials were held in Gladstone Park, where Mr Millas also volunteers.

He said: “Because of my connection to QPH I heard about the Brent Centre for Young People who are based in Winchester Avenue. I’ve been living around that place for six years and I never noticed it. When they said they had a place for me I said I would try to promote them as much as I could.

“It is one of the mayor of Brent’s chosen charities of the year. They gave me the opportunity to run the London marathon and to thank them for doing that I’m going help them become more known.”

This is the third marathon for Mr Millas, who is an account manager for Sponge Marketing in Chamberlayne Road.

Originally from Toulouse, he ran the Paris marathon last year and the Manchester Marathon on April 2nd.

He added: “London was unplanned. I’m feeling great and if it doesn’t rain on the day, I can’t wait.”
