The day was a massive success with friends and families joining together to go the extra mile for Sport Relief 2016. The weather was superb with people of all ages taking part, from 2 years through to 75 years old, in either the one, three or six mile routes.  

Sarah Milner, the event coordinator said, “It was a fantastic day! Watching the community come together to support such a great cause was brilliant! We feel very proud knowing that the money raised here today will help people living unimaginably tough lives right here in Leicestershire, across the rest of the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries.”Sport Relief would like to say a huge thank you to each and every person who has donated money or given their time to go the extra mile.
