What is Sport Relief?

Sport Relief was launched in 2002 by Comic Relief UK, a charity which supports poor and disadvantaged people in the UK and across the world.

Sport Relief Mile – a mass participation event open to everyone, regardless of their athletic prowess or mobility. People are encouraged to cover a distance of approximately 1 mile by whatever means they are able.
