Cheshire East residents go the extra mile

 

More than 300 people attended Crewe’s Cumberland Sports Ground to run the Sport Relief Mile and raise money for good causes.

The event was a big success with friends, families and work mates coming together to take part in the run.

Some chose to run one of the three categories (one-mile, three-mile and six-mile) in fancy dress – with a bumblebee and a clown both crossing the finishing line.

Fitness First was on hand to get everyone warmed up properly and Redshift Radio supplied motivating music.

The event was organised by the Council’s leisure development team and supported by the leisure services department.

Cheshire East Deputy Mayor Councillor George Walton, who started several of the races, said: “It was a fantastic day with the community coming together to support a great cause in glorious weather.

“Everyone who took part in the event should feel very proud that the money they raised will help people living tough lives both here in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries.”

The Sport Relief total currently stands at more than £52m – with more still coming in from runners’ sponsorship.
