Gloucester Rugby Milers will get to the opportunity to experience Kingsholm, as they follow a route through the famous stadium. At the start line they will be joined by …….. and many more players and coaching staff throughout the day.
The Gloucester Rugby Sport Relief Mile is just one of hundreds of Mile events that will be taking place on Sport Relief Saturday. These events will be open to the public to ensure that the whole of the UK can Go the Extra Mile for Sport Relief.
Sport Relief Saturday on July 15th will see live coverage of the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile throughout the UK on BBC ONE. In the evening there will be a 5-hour TV special also on BBC ONE, hosted by Davina McCall, Chris Evans and Gary Lineker. Highlights will include a special from the cast of Footballers Wives, "All Star Boxing", "Peter Kay Live from the Phoenix Club" and a star studded "Question of Sport Relief".
The Sport Relief Red Sock is central to the experience of everyone taking part in the day. Each 'Miler' will take part wearing one red sock, and at the finish line they'll be presented with a second to make a pair, and show the world that they've socked it to poverty.
Sport Relief merchandise includes a Fairtrade T-Shirt, a 'Roger' - the Sport Relief mascot which is the must have accessory for Summer 2006 - and the Roger pin badge. All merchandise is exclusively available at Sainsbury's and online at www.sportrelief.com.
After completing the Mile there will be plenty of other activities to enjoy at Kingsholm. Inflatables, rugby skills competitions, chance to meet the players, live entertainment, refreshments in the bar and much more.
