Your chance to run the Marlborough Mile and raise funds for Comic Relief

One of the country’s most popular charity events is coming to Marlborough for the first time, and anyone who signs up before Thursday March 1 will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win tickets to see boy band JLS perform live.

The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, part of Comic Relief, is taking place nationwide on Sunday March 25 – and Marlborough is in on the act.

The Marlborough Mile, organised by Marlborough and District Junior Athletics club, will take off from the Leisure Centre on College Fields from 9.30am.  Up to 300 people are set to dash, jog or walk round the course, which also features three- and six-mile versions.

Ben Tarring, the athletics club’s publicity officer, told Marlborough News Online:  “The club is proud to be organising the town’s first Sport Relief Mile and many of our athletes will be involved, both behind the scenes and on the course.”

“Sport Relief is an excellent way of raising money for good causes and I hope that our event will reach its capacity of 300 people.  Come on Marlborough, get your running shoes on!”

To enter, log on to www.sportrelief.com.  The cost is £3 for a child, £6 for an adult and £15 for a family. The money covers the cost of organising the event, so all participants are encouraged to seek sponsorship.

The funds go to Comic Relief, which helps people living tough lives, both in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.

The course will start and finish at the Leisure Centre and go round the Marlborough College playing fields.  Everyone who takes part will get a Sport Relief medal.  The Leisure Centre is laying on its new bouncy castle for children during the event.

Parking is in the Marlborough College overspill car park: the turning is off the A4 opposite College Fields, next to the Memorial Hall.

The 10 winners of the JLS competition will be announced on Friday March 2 and will receive five tickets each to the one-off JLS Sport Relief concert on Saturday March 24 at the O2 Arena, where the band will perform their Sport Relief single, Proud.
