Freedom Leisure, which operates three leisure centres in East Northamptonshire on behalf of East Northamptonshire Council, is working alongside both the council and Rushden & Higham Rugby Club to deliver the first Sports Relief Mile in Rushden – and everyone is welcome!
They are hoping that as many people as possible will don their tracksuits or fancy dress costumes and walk, jog or run the Sport Relief Mile 2018 Rushden course for charity. As one of the UK’s biggest fund-raising events, Sport Relief aims to bring the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives.
The Rushden event will be taking place from 10.00am on Sunday 18 March on the grounds of Rushden & Higham Rugby Club’s sports ground. Entry is just £1 per person and people are invited to run, jog or walk with family and friends.
Emma Sylvester, Active Communities Manager at Freedom Leisure, said: The organisers of Sports Relief 2018 are promising that it will be bigger and better than ever so we are keen to get our local residents involved. From tiny-tots with their families, gentle park walkers to super sprinters and fun-runners dressed up in their favourite fancy dress outfit, we urge you all to unite with us for this incredible cause. We will not only be hosting the Sport Relief Mile however, we plan to put on a fun day for all, and hope that even those who don’t want to do the mile will still join us.
“Come on Rushden, please together and support this event, in a bid to change lives.”
Among the activities on the day will be face painting, circus skills entertainer, hot and cold food including a BBQ and ice cream, plus a chance for the children to meet Jim Trainer, the Freedom Leisure mascot.
