Three friends have begun a challenge to run in 39 marathons within 33 days through eastern European countries.

The challenge will see Tom Stancliffe and Guy Hacking, both from London, and Rob Martineau, from Oxford, cover 1,036 miles across nine countries.

The men – who are raising funds for the victims of child trafficking – have set off from Odessa in Ukraine carrying their supplies.

Their final race will be to Dubrovnik, Croatia, on 4 May.

All three will have to complete the challenge without medical aid or support.

Beginning with Ukraine, they will run through countries including Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Montenegro and Kosovo.

The men hope to raise £150,000 for the charity Love 146.
