THE Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Saltash.

The town is set to host its third Sport Relief Mile on Sunday, March 20, and the event is now open for entries at

Local people from Saltash and the surrounding areas will be walking and running themselves proud to raise life-changing money which will make a difference to people living across the UK and the world’s poorest communities.

Setting off from Saltash Football Club, the Sport Relief Mile will complete a circuit close to the town centre with dozens of people expected to take part.

The Tamar Trotters’ Colin Bunting, who will be organising the event, said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Saltash has always been popular, and the 2015 event raised around £3,000 for good causes. From little ones with their mums and dads, to runners up against the clock there’s something for everyone to make themselves feel proud on this special day.”

Sport Relief is taking place from Friday, March 18 to Sunday, March 20, 2016 and there are more ways than ever for you to take part, change lives and feel proud.

Whether you get sponsored to enter an event at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school, you’ll help people living incredibly tough lives.

In fact, half of all the money raised by the public is spent right here at home in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.

The Saltash Sport Relief Mile is one of many events being coordinated by the Tamar Trotters as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. For more about the club, visit
