RIBBLE Valley residents are invited to dust off their trainers and go the extra mile for a good cause.
Ribble Valley Borough Council has joined forces with Sainsbury’s Supermarket to host Sport Relief Mile at Clitheroe Castle on Sunday, March 25th. People are being asked to walk, jog or run twice around the Clitheroe Castle Field, which is exactly a mile, or they can tackle three or six miles, instead.
The run starts at 11 a.m. and the entry price is £6 for adults, £3 for children and senior citizens, and £15 for families, with all proceeds going to disadvantaged children in the UK and abroad.
Tom Bamber, the council’s sports development officer, said: “Sport Relief Mile offers everyone, from mums and toddlers to seasoned runners, the chance to take part in the biggest mile in history.
“We are looking forward to a great day and raising much-needed cash to help vulnerable youngsters in the UK and across the world. We hope as many Ribble Valley residents as possible will take part.”
Since its launch in 2002, more than 1.25 million people have taken part in Sport Relief Mile, helping to raise more than £75m. Entry forms and more information are available from Tom on 01200 414553 or www.sportrelief.com
