Runners needed for BBC Sport Relief mile around Diss Mere, Norfolk
It is only a 'Mere Mile,' yet the efforts of Diss runners could help raise thousands for the BBC Sport Relief appeal at the end of the month.
Richard Houston, from Diss and District Athletics Club, is organising the Sport Relief mile event in Diss and is appealing for more runners to come forward to run either one, three or six miles around Diss Mere and the town centre.
So far, 80 fundraisers have agreed to participate to help deprived people both in the UK and abroad.
The event HQ is at the Pavilion next to the Mere and the one mile course will consist of two laps around Diss town centre- start at the Mere mouth, along Mere Street, then left up Market Hill into St Nicholas Street, left onto Denmark Street and half way down turn left back into the park, down the path heading for the pavilion before turning left for another lap.
The three and six mile events will start at 10am with the warm up for the one mile event starting at 10.40am.
