Following the success of Carnoustie’s first ever Sport Relief Mile in 2012 when 120 people took on the challenge, the event will again take place this year on Sunday, March 23.
Sport Relief is a nationwide charity which helps to transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people both in the UK and across the world.
The Sport Relief Mile gives participants a chance to run, walk or jog over a choice of three distances: six miles, three miles or the more family friendly one mile, meaning that anyone of any age or fitness level can take part.
The event starts off by the Black Slab car park in Carnoustie with the six-milers starting at 11.15 a.m., the three-milers at 11.30 and the one-mile kicks off at 12 noon.
Elaine Scott, of Jogscotland Carnoustie, would like to encourage as many people as possible to take part. She said: “It would be great if we could get more people to take part this year as there are very few running events in Carnoustie.”
All runners/walkers will receive a medal at the finish line. Elaine is also looking for people to help out on the day, to marshal the course and direct people at the start/finish area. Entries can be made online at the Sport Relief website www.sportrelief.com costing £6 for adults and £3 for children.
If you would like more information or are interested in volunteering on the day please contact Elaine at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01241 410737.
