South Ayrshire Council is supporting the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile this year, by organising an Active Schools Sport Relief Mile at Rozelle Park in Ayr, from 11am, on 25 March 2012.
'Active Schools' is a term given to all schools in Scotland which provide pupils with the opportunities to get active and adopt healthier lifestyles.
In South Ayrshire, a well developed and dynamic Active Schools network helps pupils to take part in school and community sports, as well as recruiting and developing a team of volunteers to deliver sports initiatives in local schools and the wider community.
The volunteers have helped organise this year's Sport Relief Mile and, with the support of South Ayrshire Council, are calling for a big turnout to support the event – so come along to Rozelle with your family and friends to hop, skip, jog or even run your way round the route!
Entrants don't need to be sporty to take part and can choose to complete one, three or six miles in the beautiful surroundings of Rozelle Park, knowing that all the money raised on the day will help to change the lives of people living tough lives in the local community, across the rest of the UK and in some the world's poorest countries.
The six mile event gets under way at 11am, the three mile event starts at 11.30am and the one mile run gets under starter's orders from Noon.
And, once you've finished, you can then kick back and enjoy all the entertainment on offer.

Councillor Margaret Toner, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Leisure said: "The Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile is back and it's time to put your best foot forward!
"From teeny-tots with their mums and dads, to super sprinters with Olympic aspirations, there's something for everyone on the big day. I'd love to see a huge turnout of people from all over South Ayrshire, so pull up your Sport Relief socks, enter the event and do something amazing!"
There will be plenty of BBC radio, online and TV coverage in the lead up to the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 25 March 2012 and by then everyone should be limbered up and ready to take part.
Councillor Toner concluded: "Of course, we don't expect anyone to swim up the Clyde, but just taking part in Sport Relief at Rozelle on 25 March 2012, means you have already made a big contribution to the charity.
"Add to that all the fun, excitement and amazing scenery in the park and it's bound to be a day you'll look back on with fond memories and a sense of pride, for many years to come!"
