Norman Varga running 50 marathons in 50 daysRunning a marathon is a grueling event, but what about running 50 marathons in 50 days?

Norman Varga is on a personal quest to arrive in London in time for Olympic Opening Ceremonies on July 27. His route will take him through Slovakia, Austria, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. 

The 25-year-old plans to run a total of 1,240 miles, the distance from Budapest to London. This equates to nearly 25 miles per day. 

Remember, a full marathon is 26.2 miles.

Varga is raising money for his foundation, which is dedicated to a healthy lifestyle, as well as education in the areas of science and art for teenagers.

Varga departed the Hungarian capital city on Saturday.
