British child actor Daniel Roche is testing his running skills for charity.

The youngster, who stars in hit U.K. Tv comedy Outnumbered, is teaming up with staff at Save The Children to take part in the World Marathon Challenge in a bid to raise cash for youngsters suffering from a preventable illness.

The 14 year old reveals he will be running in the global event on Wednesday (16Oct13) in Manchester and he tells the Bbc, "(It is a) really, really rather large campaign... which is all over the world, which allows both children and adults to run for children so anyone can participate."

The World Marathon Challenge takes place between 16-23 October (13) across 40 countries worldwide.
