Sport Relief 2010


19 - 21 MARCH 2010


Over 175,000 people, including future Prime Minister David Cameron, took to the streets and completed the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on the Sunday. 

Comedian Eddie Izzard ran an astonishing 43 marathons in 51 days, while David Walliams and his team of celebrity friends cycled the length of the UK non-stop in 82 gruelling hours. Christine Bleakley water-skied across the English Channel, Lawrence Dallaglio cycled to each of the 6 Nation’s stadiums and Helen Skelton kayaked 2,010 miles along the Amazon over six weeks – breaking two world records in the process.

The nation got to enjoy a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, and watch Smithy be crowned “Coach of the Year” at the Sports Personality of the Year awards.
