Llanelli’s Sports Relief Mile 2012

Llanelli’s Sport Relief Mile attracted over 300 entrants of all ages and abilities to the Millennium Coastal Path on what was a glorious sunny day.  The Sports Relief Mile allowed children, parents and grandparents to run together and turned the event into a real family occasion. The weather conditions were perfect along the Millennium Coastal Path with most of the runners wearing their Sports relief T-Shirts and everyone one of them going that extra mile for Sports Relief.

There were  literally hundreds of Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile events taking place across the country on Sunday 25th March. As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. With over a million people expected to join in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, there was  no better way to take part in the UK’s biggest year of sport and help to change lives too.

Healthy Life Activities and staff at the Millennium Coastal Park’s Discovery Centre joined forces to stage the Sainsbury’s Llanelli Millennium Coastal Park Mile. Race Organiser Noelwyn Daniel “ It was great to see so many families turning up and taking part in the Sports Relief Mile. It was an unique event which allowed parents and children to run together and soak up the atmosphere of the day.”

They were able to run 1, 3 or 6 miles with the route taking the runners along the award winning Millennium Coastal Path with it’s amazing scenic views across Carmarthen Bay.  The event started and finished at the Discovery Centre.  The money raised through sponsorship by those taking part will support people living unimaginably tough lives, both on our doorstep and across the world’s poorest countries.

Everyone taking part in the event should give themselves a huge pat on the back for supporting a great cause and being amongst over a million runners across the UK raising thousands for Sports Relief. Those taking part can view photos of the day by going to
