Sport Relief Mile Sunday 20th March

Barnt Green Sport Relief Mile Sunday 20 March 2016

Join in the fun and games

After the success of the event in 2012 & 2014, The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back again in Barnt Green on Sunday 20th March 2016, with more participant places available than ever before.  The event has proved very popular with locals; in 2014, it was sold out and raised over £4000 for charities at home and overseas.  It is hoped that the event, which sets off from Millennium Park on Hewell Road, will attract hundreds of locals who will be running or walking, but most importantly taking part, to raise money for Sport Relief.

Mums, dads, youngsters along with road runners, joggers and those just wanting to enjoy their first fun run, can enjoy a choice of a one mile route round the village, or a three or six mile route that includes an off-road section past the Bittell Reservoirs.

Barnt Green Chuggers, the local running group based at Barnt Green Sports Club on Margesson Drive, are once again organising the event in conjunction with Barnt Green Parish Council.   Mike Dickenson, Chairman of the Chuggers said: “The club positively encourages those wanting to jog, run, get fit and enjoy the company of others doing the same – and see the Sport Relief Mile as a great way for people to ‘have a go’ and raise money for good causes”.

There will be 270 places for runners of all ages & abilities with waves of runners starting from 12pm, with each wave preceded by a fun warm-up in the park.  The runners will finish by 2pm, then there’ll be fun & entertainment continuing afterwards.  There will be something for everyone on what looks set to be a great day.  More details will follow!

Places can be booked from January 2016. Why not get sponsored and help transform the lives of people living here in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries, while being part of an incredible nationwide event. To register your interest NOW or book from January 2016, visit
