It's not long now before the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile events hit the streets of Honiton on Sunday March 16. All the organisation has been completed and the organisers, Honiton Running Club, are hoping for a huge turnout. The numbers of people entering the one, three and six mile events has been gathering pace in the last week and is heading towards a busy last few days. Fancy dress outfits have been taken out and running shoes have been donned, numbers are arriving in the post and sponsorship forms are being filled up. But there is still time for many more to enter the event to make it a great day. The event will run through the High Street from 10.30am and it is hoped that there will be a massive group of supporters cheering on the runners. Teams of runners from many of the town clubs are entering as well as a group of fitness workers from Honiton Sports Centre. Why don't you get your workmates, teammates or schoolmates together and enter a team? Entrants are not expected to race against the other participants - unless they want to! Entry for the event can be done online at or by telephone 0871 2001515. The cost of entry is just £2 for juniors and £5 for seniors but it is hoped that every entrant will also raise sponsorship funds for the Sport Relief charity. It takes several days for race numbers and information pack to arrive from Sport Relief HQ so enter early to make sure yours is available as soon as possible. Look at the website
