Related topics: Community / Health / Leisure and culture / My area

The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Shrewsbury. The town is set to host its fourth Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 20 March, and needs local people to come together and make themselves proud by entering now here.

Local heroes from Shrewsbury will be walking and running themselves proud during the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile to raise life-changing money for Sport Relief 2016.

The colourful, cheerful and eager milers will be doing their bit to make a difference to people living across the UK and the world’s poorest communities.

On Sunday 20 March the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile will take place at the Shrewsbury Sports Village at 10am with hundreds of locals getting on their marks, set and go for Sport Relief. Super sprinters and willing walkers will all feel at home with a choice of one, three or six miles.

Places are limited so people are being asked to sign up as soon as possible by going to www.sportrelief.com. Bookings on the day can only be taken if there are spaces available. The entrance fee is £7 for adults, £3 for children under 16 and £17 for a family of four (two adults, two children).

Councillor Stuart West, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for leisure and culture, said:

“The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Shrewsbury is here and it’s your time to walk or run yourself proud. From little ones with their mums and dads, to runners up against the clock there’s something for everyone to make themselves feel proud on this special day.”

Sport Relief is back from Friday 18 to Sunday 20 March 2016 and there are more ways than ever for people to take part, change lives and feel proud. Whether they get sponsored to enter an event at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school, they’ll help people living incredibly tough lives. In fact, half of all the money raised by the public is spent right here at home in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.
