HUNDREDS are expected to set off from the start line of Mablethorpe’s Sport Relief Mile later this month.

Neighbourhood Management, part of East Lindsey District Council, are hosting the event on Sunday, March 25 which is part of the biennial nationwide fundraiser, raising money for causes both domestic and around the world.

Runners or walkers of all abilities can choose to take part in the one, three or six mile routes setting off from the Mablethorpe Lifeboat Station and going across the promenade.

Ann Britz, Chairman of the Neighbourhood Management Board, has challenged local people to ‘do something amazing’ by taking part on the day.

District Council spokesman James Gilbert said: “The Sport Relief Mile is an exciting opportunity for people in Mablethorpe and visitors to the town to have fun, whilst getting fit and active together.

“We hope everyone taking part has a great time.”

Kicking off this year’s fundraising was comedian John Bishop who endured a ‘week of hell’ for the cause. Bishop captured the nation’s imagination by completing a 290 mile triathlon across five days last month, raising over £1.6million.

The one-miler starts at 10am, the three mile run at 10.30am and the six mile run at 11am.

Readers should visit www.sportrelief.com to sign up and download a sponsor form and the entry fee is £6 for adults and £3 for children, or £15 for a family.
