Sports Relief Mile entrants are up

THE number of people taking part in this year’s Sport Relief Mile in Kettering was up by almost a quarter to 430.

More than 100 extra entrants than in previous years – many in fancy dress – ran around Kettering town centre on Sunday, March 25.

More than 150 people signed up to take part on the day.

Event organiser Shaun Birdsall said: “We know the Kettering Milers raised more than £7,000 in sponsorship money two years ago, and with record numbers running the mile this year, we’re confident of surpassing that.”
