To help support Sport Relief 2014, 88 athletes, parents, grand parents and siblings from the Junior and Mini Athletics clubs turned out on Friday 21st March to take part in the first ever Monkton Stadium “Upto a Mile”. Both younger and older athletes ran, jogged and walked around the track to complete a fantastic total of 100 miles. They all helped to raise a generous £300.00 on the night with more money to come in the form of sponsorship.
A BIG Thank You to all who took part and helped JHAC and Monkton Stadium support this worthy cause.
