The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Allerthorpe Lakeland Park.

The Park is set to host its first Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 20 March, and needs local people to come together and make themselves proud by entering now at www.sportrelief.com.

Local heroes from Pocklington and surrounding villages will be walking and running themselves proud during the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief 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 Pocklington Mile will be held at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park and is set to be an incredible event set in beautiful surroundings.

Stephen Clark of the Rotary Club of Pocklington and Market Weighton (joint organisers of the event along with Allerthorpe Lakeland Park) said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park 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 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 school, you’ll help people living incredibly tough lives.
