JUNIOR fun runners have the chance to meet Iggle Piggle at the Sports Relief Mile on Sunday.

The In the Night Garden star has recently signed up to take part in the run which starts at the rugby club in Low Road, Dovercourt and runs along the promenade on one, three and six-mile courses.

The fun starts at 11am with the popular one mile event beginning at 11.30am.

Harwich and Dovercourt Rugby Club is teaming up with Harwich Runners to organise the event which sees thousands of people across the country swing, cycle or run to raise money for disadvantaged children at home and abroad.

Rugby club secretary Trevor Armstrong said: “The whole community can take part in the race because it is fun and there is something for everything.

“Last year we had people walk it and people in all sorts of fancy dress."

Runners can enter on the day or go to sportrelief.com.
