It’s time to dig out that running kit Peterborough! Sport Relief is here again…
On Sunday March 23 the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile will be setting off from Ferry Meadows Country Park 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.
Enter now at www.sportrelief.com, get sponsored and help transform the lives of people living here in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries, while being part of an incredible nationwide event.
Scott Beasley said: “This is third time the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile has come to Peterborough so let’s put on the headband, get training and show the rest of the country what we can do. There will be plenty of activities on the day so don’t forget to rope in your mates, family, boyfriend, girlfriend and colleagues too!”
On Friday March 21 the BBC will treat the nation to a super special night of Sport Relief TV, with presenters including Gary Lineker, Gaby Logan, Claudia Winkleman, Jack Whitehall, Clare Balding amongst others, hosting a star-studded show full of celebrity performances, comedy sketches, highlights from this year’s challenges and films about the incredible work Sport Relief supports.
Del Boy and Rodney will also be back on our TV screens after 10 years with a special Only Fools and Horses Sport Relief sketch. Strictly host, Tess Daly, will reveal the judges’ favourite partnership from Sport Relief Does Strictly, where four Paralympians and their professional dance partners, will have taken on a group dance challenge, hoping to impress the judges and take home the Sport Relief glitter ball trophy on the night.
Then on Sunday March 23 it’s over to you Peterborough to come together and take part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games.
