Families warm up to the Sports Relief challenge 

Sport Relief 2014

Boltonians are being urged to get active and take part in Bolton's second Sport Relief Mile.

The event, which takes place at Leverhulme Park between 12 noon and 4pm on Sunday, March 23, promises to be an unforgettable event for all the family with loads of fun runs, activities and entertainments.

Participants can choose their own distance, from one, three or six miles and many local people have already signed up for one of the runs but there’s still time to join in.

There will also be a free climbing wall and multi-use games arena plus musical entertainment from a number of performers playing music including rock n roll, folk, reggae and swing.

The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, which sets off from Leverhulme Park running track, aims to encourage families to get fit and stay healthy while also raising money for people living tough lives right here on our doorstep; across the rest of the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Councillor Anthony Connell, Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Sports said: “It’s fantastic that so many people are once again gathering together to show their support for Sport Relief and raising money for charity.

"Bolton has some wonderful parks and green spaces for families to get out-and-about in and this is a great opportunity for them to get active, keep fit and have fun together in the great outdoors."

"We want this to be the best Sport Relief Mile yet, so please enter today and join the rest of the nation in raising plenty of cash for a great cause."

To enter the Mile, register online at www.sportrelief.com. Cost to enter is £15 for a family or £3 for a child and £6 for an adult.
