Sport Relief Mile comes to Lewes in March

SAINSBURY’S Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Lewes!

The town is set to host its first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday March 25.

It needs local people to come together and show their support by entering now at

As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives – so it’s time to dust off those trainers and enter right now.

The event will be held at Lewes Leisure Centre in Mountfield Road on the athletics track, making it a safe, secure environment for the whole family.

Entrants don’t have to be sporty to take part, but can choose to complete one, three or six miles knowing that all the money raised will help to change the lives of people living unimaginably tough lives right here on our doorstep, across the rest of the UK and in some the world’s poorest countries.

Managing director of Wave Leisure Peter Crowley said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Lewes is here and it’s your time to shine.

“From teeny-tots with their mums and dads, to super sprinters up against the clock there’s something for everyone on the big day.

“This is the first Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Lewes and it’s set to be a great event. So come on, pull your Sport Relief socks up, enter the Mile and do something amazing!”

Sport Relief has a unique history of dedicated people doing extraordinary things to rise to the challenge.

Last September, David Walliams started Sport Relief off with an epic splash when he completed The BT Sport Relief Challenge: Walliams vs The Thames. Despite battling a nasty bacterial bug and bitingly cold water, David swam a staggering 140 miles and has so far raised over £1m for Sport Relief.

The Sport Relief Weekend kicks off on Friday 23rd March when everyone gets active, has fun and raises cash at home, at work or at school; before settling down to watch a night of top Sport Relief TV on BBC One.
