Phil Selway will run the event in aid of The Samaritans

RADIOHEAD drummer PHIL SELWAY is to run the LONDON MARATHON – and is looking for sponsors to raise cash for THE SAMARITANS.

The drummer, who has been involved with The Samaritans since the 80s, will run in the event on April 14, and hopes to complete the circuit in under four hours.

Selway has opened an online sponsorship form, and hopes to raise £4,500 for the charity. He has already raised over £11,000.

Anyone who pledges cash will be entered into a draw to win a drumkit he used to record tracks from the group’s seminal album ‘OK Computer’.
