Take a Sponsored Stroll – Sport Relief Mile27 Jan
Ellesmere Port Sports Village is hosting a Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 20 March, and it’s going to be a great day!
You can sign up to one of three distances available:
- One Mile – A gentle walk, jog or run for people of all ages and abilities.
- Three Miles – A manageable distance even for novice runners looking for a challenge.
- Six Miles – Push yourself to the limit and take your running to the next level!
So as you can see, it’s an event that everybody can take part in, and we want to see as many of you there as possible! All children and families are welcome to support those taking part too, and we’ll be running some extra challenges, prize giveaways and class demonstrations too.
Still on the fence about signing up? Bradley, our Gym & Fitness Lead at Ellesmere Port Sports Village, has answered some of the most common questions!
What distance should I sign up for?
Whatever you feel comfortable with! If you just want a stroll with your friends or family, the 1 mile is perfect. If you fancy a bit of a challenge or you’re looking for a fitness goal to work towards, then sign up for the 6 miles and get training! The 3 mile run sits perfectly in between for those that want a manageable jog.
I’ve signed up! What do I need to bring with me?
That’s great! Make sure you bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated, a towel (as you’ll probably get quite sweaty), and a healthy snack to refuel after your run.
What should I wear for my run?
Keep it nice and simple with comfortable clothing and a pair of trainers with solid foot support. Loose fitting t-shirts and shorts, or jogging bottom/leggings are all ideal, and for the ladies, a supportive sports bra or under-top. It might also be worth bringing something light and waterproof too, as the weather in March can still get quite wet!
Get training! You can download training plans from the Sport Relief Mile website, or if you pop into the gym and speak to a member of staff, we’ll set you on the path to completing your goal!
The Sport Relief Mile takes place on the athletics track at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Sunday 20 March at 10.00am, sign up on the Sport Relief website.
The team from Frodsham Leisure Centre will also be supporting the Helsby Running Club event Sunday 20 March! We’ll be there running games and challenges and one of our talented instructors will be doing the warm up.
