Sunday 20 March sees Huntingdon’s fifth Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, and it needs local people to come together and make themselves proud by running or walking one, three or six miles. This year's event takes place at Hinchingbrooke Country Park, Huntingdon and is being organised by Huntingdonshire District Council’s One Leisure Active Lifestyles and Countryside Services teams. You can sign up on the Sport Relief website.
 
Local heroes from Huntingdon will be walking and running themselves proud during the 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.
 
The Mile will pass through and take in all the sights Hinchingbrooke Country Park has to offer. There will be a group warm-up at 10.45am to get participants ready for the 11am start and music and refreshments available for all.
 
Cllr Robin Howe, whose executive responsibilities include One Leisure Active Lifestyles, said: "The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Huntingdon 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."
 
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 at school, you’ll help people living incredibly tough lives. 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.
