Sport Relief 2012
Hundreds of local people turned out in force on Sunday 25 March 2012 for the Sport Relief Mile in Chichester.

The event, organised by Chichester District Council, brought together lots of different members of the community, including many families, friends and individuals who were either experienced runners or completely new to running.
All competitors received a bottle of water and a sport relief medal when they crossed the finish line.
As well as the run, there was also a free community play pop-up event at the park. The event, held as part of Outdoor Play Week, included:

All the money you raised will help transform lives here in the UK and across the world's poorest countries. We would also like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the event a huge success."
