The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Rotherham’s Clifton Park.

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 at the Sport Relief website.

Local heroes from Rotherham 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 Water Play Area the Rotherham Mile will take in the sights of the picturesque surroundings of Clifton Park and is set to be an incredible event.

Cllr Taiba Yasseen, Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Cultural Services said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Clifton Park 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.”

There will also be additional fun activities to take part in on the day for the whole family including tennis, orienteering and boccia!

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.
