Maldon Rugby Club members are getting behind Sport Relief by organising a Maldon Mile.

People will be running, walking, hopping, skipping or jumping for one mile on March 23.

Runners can choose from one, three or six mile courses at the ground at Draper’s Farm Sports Club, Drapers Chase, Heybridge.

Club secretary Simon Peacock, 36, said: “We tend to focus on rugby and it’s nice to get to do something like this and give something back.

“Sport is obviously very important to us as a club and it’s something that we thought was a good cause.”

Register in advance at or turn up on the day.
