THE SAINSBURY’S Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Solihull.

2016 will be the fifth time Solihull has hosted the event, and organisers are calling for local people to come together and sign up to take part.

Taking place on Sunday (March 20) the fun run will start at Tudor Grange Leisure Centre and pass through Tudor Grange Park.

Colourful, cheerful and eager milers will be doing their bit to make a difference to people living across the UK and help aid some of the world’s poorest communities.

Coun Ken Meeson, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “I am delighted to see Solihull involved with this event and I would encourage people of all ages to sign up and help make a difference.”

Sport Relief will run from Friday (March 18) until Sunday (March 20) – and this year there are more ways to get involved than ever.

This year, half of all the money raised will be spent in the UK.
