It's time to dig out that running kit,  according to sports fan Dennis Wall.

Dennis is organising the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Ellesmere Port Mile, coming to the town on Sunday, March 23.

The event will be setting off from the Stanney Oaks Athletics Track at the Stanney Oaks Leisure Centre, Stanney Lane from 10am to 2pm.

Hundreds of residents are expected to be getting on their marks, set and go for Sport Relief. 

Super sprinters and willing walkers will all feel at home with a choice of one, three or six miles as part of the nationwide event.

Dennis said: “This is the second time the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile has  come to Ellesmere Port so let’s don the headband, get training and show the rest  of the country what we can do.

“There will be plenty of activities on the  day so don’t forget to rope in your mates, family, boyfriend, girlfriend and colleagues too!”

It’s not just the public who will be taking on the fundraising challenge with daring  Davina McCall pledging to go the extra mile by travelling across the UK all under  her own steam and all in the name of  Sport Relief.

But Davina has hit the national headlines this week after it was revealed she collapsed while attempting to swim Lake Windermere in bitterly cold conditions.

Showing signs of hypothermia, the  46-year-old TV presenter had to be rescued immediately after completing the 1.5-mile swim.

On Friday, March 21, the BBC will treat  the nation to Sport Relief TV with presenters including Gary Lineker, Gaby Logan, Claudia Winkleman, Jack Whitehall, Clare Balding among others.

There will be hosting a star-studded  show full of celebrity performances, comedy sketches, highlights from this year’s  challenges and films about the work  Sport Relief supports.

Del Boy and Rodney will also be back on  TV screens after 10 years with a special Only Fools and Horses Sport Relief sketch, while Strictly host Tess Daly will reveal  the judges’ favourite partnership from Sport Relief Does Strictly, where four Paralympians and their professional  dance partners will have taken on a group dance challenge.

Dennis added: “Then on Sunday, it’s  over to you when the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Ellesmere Port Mile takes place and people come together to take part in  the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games.”
