Sport Relief mile at Sewerby

THE cliff-tops of Sewerby will provide the dramatic backdrop for a Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday, March 25.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Sport, Play and Arts Service has organised an event at Sewerby Hall and Gardens to raise money for the charity.

Runners can choose to run one of three different routes, from one mile, three miles and six miles. There will also be additional charity activities, including a penalty shootout competition, archery and a disc golf hole-in-one contest, held between 10am and 3pm.

Coun Jane Evison (pictured), cabinet portfolio holder for rural issues and cultural services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Sewerby will provide an excellent venue to run a mile for Sport Relief and we hope that people from across the East Riding will take part here in order to raise money for such a worthy cause.”

Running the mile will cost £6 for adults, £3 for children and £15 for families, which goes towards the staging of the event.

Those interested in taking part in the Sewerby Mile are also reminded that Sewerby Hall and Gardens hosts a free, weekly Parkrun community event, which is a great way to get fit for the event and burn off any holiday weight.
