Radio 1’s Sport Relief 2008 Comes To Brum

If you’ve listened to Radio 1 at all recently, you’ve probably heard someone mention the Sport Relief Challenge 2008. This year Comedy Dave and Chappers are running a mile at 32 different Football Club pitches around the UK, plus an extra bonus mile at Wembley. They aren’t told until on the day which club they’ll be running that day, however after the initial start (Portsmouth on the first morning, followed by Inverness that evening!) they’re now following a logical path south towards London. Today, day 7, they finally made it to the West Midlands, racing around at the Derby, Aston Villa, and Birmingham grounds. After losing the race at Derby, Dave’s punishment was to wear the Hercules the Lion costume while running around Villa Park. At St. Andrews the fund-raising duo were met by the BBC’s Greg James, who, for some reason, had to do his mile wearing nothing but his pants while singing Kylie’s “I Should Be So Lucky.”… random!

Anyway, they’ve all raised over £75,000 for Sports Relief so far, so well done them! If only my job was as fun… ;)
