The Eden Project is set to host the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday March 20.

Eden is welcoming participants of all ages and abilities to dress up and run, skip or walk a choice of one, three or six miles for charity.

The enthusiastic “milers” will be doing their bit to make a difference to people living across the UK and the world’s poorest communities.

The Eden Mile will pass through the beautiful outdoor gardens beside the landscape of the world famous Biomes.

Event Organiser Daniel Barrott said: “It’s a privilege to once again host The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile here at Eden. This year our route takes participants through the spectacular outdoor gardens of the project.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome milers of all ages and abilities, from little ones to those who push themselves for fast lap times. There’s something for everyone to make themselves feel proud on this special day for such an important event.”

The Eden Mile starts at 2pm and there will be free entry to Eden for friends and family of participants after midday on the day of the event. All participants must check in at the Gallery in Eden’s Visitor Centre an hour before the event starts. To register for the event visit

There is a limit for on-the-day registrations, so it is not guaranteed that anyone who does not pre-register will be able to participate.

Sport Relief takes place from March 18 to 20, 2016 and brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. People can run, swim, cycle or even walk at events across the country.

Whether people are sponsored to enter an event at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school, it all helps people who are living incredibly tough lives.

The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief across the UK and the world’s poorest communities. In fact, half of all the money raised by the public is spent right here at home in the UK.
