Sport Relief at Millennium Point 2017

More than 6,000 people gathered under blue skies at Millennium Point to take part in Sport Relief. From the Start at Millennium Point the milers headed down Curzon Street, onto Moor Street Queensway before turning towards the finish line. Milers were joined by a whole host of famous faces including Sir Steve Redgrave, Jane Sixsmith, Sir Digby Jones and Graham Taylor.
The Sport Relief Red Sock was central to the experience of everyone taking part. Each ?Miler? who took part at the start was wearing one red sock, and at the finish line they were presented with a second to make a pair, and show the world that they had socked it to poverty.

The start/finish arena was also the place for a whole host of free family entertainment, including a performance by the Junior World Bollywood Champion from Shri Academy of Dance. Birmingham's superb SportsFest initiative will also offering you have-a-go sessions in a whole range of sports such as Tennis, Cricket, Football, Rugby, and Athletics! Further to this there were activities for children with disabilities.
