Mark 'Run Geordie Run' Allison is leaving the North East today ahead of a 3,400 mile charity run across Europe.

He'll be setting off for Portugal in his motorhome - which will be his home for the next 100 days.

The European segment of Mark's round-the-world run is 3,400 miles long and follows on from his previous runs down the UK and across the USA and Australia.
