Run the Sport Relief Mile at Whiteknights - Sunday 23 March
Release Date 20 March 2014
The University of Reading is supporting its Students' Union (RUSU) to provide the only official Sport Relief Mile in central Reading on Sunday 23 March.
During the week the University's Whiteknights campus excels in exercising the mind. However for this charity event the University looks forward to welcoming the local community for exercise of a different kind, to raise as much money as possible for some fantastic causes.
Reading residents can take part in the fun run at three times during the day, 10am, 11am and midday. For the more serious runners there is the option of running three or six miles.
The route will take runners through the centre of campus and include the lovely Whiteknights lake. Refreshment outlets will be open for friends and families wishing to cheer on participants and recovering runners!
If you wish to take part please visit the BBC Sport Relief Mile website. On the day, participants and spectators should arrive at the University (using the Pepper Lane or Shinfield Road entrances) and follow event signs to the allocated car parks from where they will then be directed to the Students' Union to register.
If you would like to volunteer your time to help marshal the run, or for more information, please contact Adam Bailey, RUSU Student Activities Manager, tel. 0118 378 4119 email firstname.lastname@example.org.
