A plumb job for runners is all for Sport Relief

RUNNING enthusiasts are being urged to get set and go for charity in the Pershore Sport Relief Plum Mile.

Wychavon District Council will host its third Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile at the town’s Abbey Park on Sunday March, 20.

The mile will take runners through the stunning setting of Abbey Park’s grounds and will follow a route past the impressive Norman Abbey, before winding its way amongst the mature trees and sculptures in the park.

There will be a warm up session in the band stand area of the park, before sprinters and walkers assemble at the starting line to choose from a one, three or six mile course.

Mark Williams, sports development officer at the council said: “Our Sport Relief Plum Mile is open to people of all ages and is all about them getting active and having a laugh with friends and family.

“Last time, the Pershore Mile had more than 300 participants and raised more than £4,250 for the charity. This year we want even more people to get involved.

“All money raised will help people living unimaginably tough lives right here on our doorstep, across the rest of the UK and in some the world’s poorest countries.

“So motivate your mates, fire up your family and challenge your colleagues to get running.”

The event will start at 11.15am from Abbey Park.
