Over 150 runners to take part in Burnham-On-Sea's Sport Relief Mile

Over 150 runners are set to take part in Burnham-On-Sea's Sport Relief Mile, which takes place today (Sunday, March 25th) as part of the BBC's nationwide fundraising drive.

The Burnham-On-Sea event is being jointly run by Burnham-On-Sea Harriers and Highbridge's King Alfred Sports Centre with the event's HQ being provided by Burnham Holiday Village.

Entrants don't have to be sporty to take part, but can choose to complete one, three or six mile circuits.

After a warm-up session of zumba, the run will set off from The South Esplanade, passing along the cycle track, taking in the sights of the River Brue.

In addition to the runs being managed by Burnham Harriers, King Alfred Sports Centre will be providing a bouncy castle (weather permitting), health checks and mile challenges on rowing machines and bikes. There will also be the opportunity to try African drumming with 'Fun 2 Drum'.

Brian Beale from Burnham Harriers and Penny Cook from 1610, joint organisers, told "This is the first Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile to be held in Burnham-On-Sea 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! From teeny-tots with their mums and dads, to super sprinters up against the clock, there will be something for everyone on the day."

Local residents can enter the run on the day or by signing up online here. Entrants don't have to be sporty to take part and can choose to complete one, three or six mile circuits.
