Sport Relief is giving you the chance to run alongside double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes at the London Sport Relief Mile on 16 March.

Holmes is one of over 100 famous faces who have signed up to take part in hundreds of Mile events across the UK.

Dame Kelly will start the 15:15 Mile along London's Embankment and is planning to run in the 15:40 event.

Sign up now for a fun day out for all the family in the company of a British Olympic legend.

There will be famous faces at all of the 23 flagship Sport Relief Miles and a handful of celebrities at some of the local Mile events.

Richard Fleeshman and Darren Campbell will be among those doing the Manchester Mile in Albert Square.

In Birmingham Steve Bull and Denise Lewis will be going the extra Mile at the event in Centenary Square.

The London Mile route takes in views of many of the capital's most famous landmarks as Sport Relief Milers make their way down the Embankment from Westminster to Blackfriars.

Davina McCall, Colin Jackson, Tim Lovejoy and children's favourite Sporticus are also doing London Miles at varying times at the same venue, alongside a host of familiar faces.

The Sport Relief Mile is the ultimate way of getting involved in Sport Relief and the idea is to sign up and get yourself sponsored to raise cash.

Comic Relief will then spend the money you raise to help vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives both at home in the UK and in the world's poorest countries.

This year participants can set their own challenge by having the choice of completing one, three or six Miles.

There will be well over 200 Miles all around the UK so there is bound to be one close to you, so all you have to is sign up and start getting yourself sponsored!

It costs 5 for adults and 2 for children (under 16) to enter the Mile, or 12 for family entry (two adults, two children). Entry fees cover costs only and do not include a donation to Sport Relief.

So rise to the challenge and sign up now for a fun day out alongside many of the UK's favourite sporting stars and play your part in Sport Relief 2008.
