Community out in force for Sport Relief Mile


On Sunday 23 March the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile set off in Littledown Park, Bournemouth, with around 300 locals walking, running and jogging for Sport Relief.  Super sprinters and willing walkers felt at home with a choice of one, three or six mile runs.

The event was hosted by Bournemouth University’s sportBU, in conjunction with AFC Bournemouth Community Sport Trust and BH Live.

Highlights included a 75 year old entrant who walked the course backwards and the youngest entrant, only 2 years old, who waddled the course with his parents to a standing ovation from the crowd of spectators!

Sainsbury’s supported the event handing out free fruit and water to runners and AFC Bournemouth brought down their inflatable shoot out machine for spectators to keep themselves entertained.

In total, more than £1,800 was raised for Sport Relief through the Bournemouth event.
