Thousands hit the streets for Sport Relief Mile in Norwich

Thousands of sporty fundraisers took to the city streets this morning for the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile in Norwich.

The first wave of runners set off from outside City Hall at 9am, after a group warm-up session at the Forum, as the 2012 Sport Relief campaign reached its climax.

Fundraisers of all ages donned fancy dress for the occasion, including runners dressed as clowns, storm troopers, Mister Men and superheroes.

Dancers from Norwich Samba, the energetic Zumbathon amd Norwich Rock Choir were among the acts entertaining milers and spectators as they follow the course through the city to the finish line at Chapelfield Gardens.

Mile events have been taking place all across Norfolk since Friday, with more than one million people in the UK expected to have completed one by the end of the Sport Relief weekend.
