50-year-old Dave Hall is running 40 marathons in 40 days and sleeping in a shack each night for charity.

Dave, from Luton, will travel from John O' Groats to Land's End. He's raising money for the charity Home Leone and hopes to get enough money to build 40 new homes in Sierra Leone, Africa, for families who are currently living in slums.

He began his journey on 18th August and will finish on the 26th September. The shack he's sleeping in is a replica of a slum-town shack, which is driven along the route with Dave.
