Dearne residents are being urged to dig out their running kit and take part in this year’s Rotherham Sport Relief.

Keen runners are urged to join in one of three races, which will be setting off from Clifton Park on Sunday, March 23, at 11am.

There are three distances to choose from, one, three or six miles. This will be the fourth annual event and hundreds of runners are expected on the start line.

Chris Johnson, Rotherham Council’s sports development officer, said: “This is the fourth time the race has come to Rotherham and we want to make it the best, and most popular, we’ve hosted, so let’s don the headband, get training and show the rest of the country what we can do.

“Don’t forget to rope in your mates, family, boyfriend, girlfriend and colleagues too.”

The mayor and mayoress of Rotherham, John and Kath Foden, will be starting this years race.

Money raised will go towards helping disadvantaged people young and old, at home and abroad.
