Sport Relief Mile Coming To Balloch


Sport ReliefThe Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is coming to Balloch for the first time on Sunday 20 March. Local heroes from West Dunbartonshire will be walking and running themselves proud during the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile to raise life-changing money for Sport Relief 2016.

The colourful, cheerful and eager milers will be doing their bit to make a difference to people living across the UK and the world’s poorest communities. Setting off from inside the Main Gates to Balloch Country Park on Balloch Road, the Mile will pass through/ take in the top sights of the National Park along with Balloch Castle Country Park’s renowned Walled Garden and is set to be an incredible event.

Maurice Donohue from West Dunbartonshire AC, which is organising the event along with Vale of Leven Academy, said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in West Dunbartonshire is here and it’s your time to walk or run yourself proud. From little ones with their mums and dads, to runners up against the clock there’s something for everyone to make themselves feel proud on this special day.”

Sport Relief is held from Friday 18 to Sunday 20 March 2016 and there are more ways than ever for you to take part. Whether you get sponsored to enter an event at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school, you’ll help people living incredibly tough lives. Half of all the money raised by the public is spent in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.
