People of Nottingham to walk and run themselves proud for Sport Relief

The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Nottingham!

The city is set to host a Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 20 March, and needs local people to come together and make themselves proud by entering now at www.sportrelief.com

Local heroes from Nottingham 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.

Setting off from the recently opened Harvey Hadden Sports Village, the Nottingham Mile will pass through/take in the sights of Bilborough Park, the new cycling track and finish inside the Athletics stadium on the running track and is set to be an incredible event.

Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Nottingham 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.”

The leisure centre cafe will be open providing food and drinks for Milers and spectators. There will also be entertainment with the opportunity to try out different sports and activities. Parking on site will be limited so please car share, take public transport or park nearby where possible.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, across the UK and the world’s poorest communities.  It all leads up to the Sport Relief weekend and a fantastic night of TV on the BBC.

Sport Relief is back from Friday 18 to Sunday 20 March 2016 and there are more ways than ever for you to take part, change lives and feel proud. Whether you get sponsored to enter an event at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school, you’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.

You can run, swim, cycle or even walk yourself proud at events across the country. There’s a distance for everyone, whether you’re sporty or not. Find out more at www.sportrelief.com
