March junior athletes raise £200 for Sport Relief

A large group of March Athletics Club juniors along with parents and club members were set an hour-long challenge to collectively run/walk in excess of 100 miles around the Elm Road Sports Field March, in aid of Sport Relief.

This challenge was set by the junior coaches in place of their normal coaching session and held under floodlights, with most walking/running further than they had ever done before. Three laps equalled a mile and members’ laps were recorded with the top junior in each age group receiving a Sport Relief prize.

Each junior also received an easter egg for their efforts from club stalwart Moira Brown. A fantastic total of 545 miles was run/walked, raising over £200 for Sport Relief.
