Miles of smiles with Sport Relief

LACE up your trainers for the town’s second Sport Relief run this month.

Bedford is set to host Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday, March 25, to raise money for vulnerable people, both across the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Setting off from the bandstand in Bedford Park, entrants can chose to run one, three or six miles around the park’s grounds.

Councillor Doug McMurdo, portfolio holder for leisure and culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back in Bedford and there’s something for everyone, young and old, to enjoy on the big day.

“Last year, the Bedford Mile had over 450 participants and raised a staggering £14,872.24.

“This year we want to make the day even bigger and better so come on Bedford, pull up your Sport Relief socks, enter the Mile and do something amazing.”

Entry costs £6 for adults, £3 for children, and £15 for a family of four.
