Karni raise over £15k with Sport Relief mile
First ever Sport Relief mile on campus is huge success
Karnival’s first Sport Relief mile raised over £15,000 for charity as students and locals spent their Sunday morning running around campus.
Although they are still calculating the final figure, the fun-run is estimated to have generated “between £15,000 and £30,000”, according to Karni director Tom Goodman.
“It went even better than we were expecting,” he said. “Barring one brief shower, it was a beautiful day and it was great to see so many locals interacting with students as well.”
Considering locals tend to despise students, this seems to be a step in the right direction.
Starting at Trent building, there were three different routes: a one miler, a three miler and a six miler.
The undoubted stars of the show were Adam Bevis-Knowles, who won the one mile race, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor who competed and these little guys, who were unable to take the gold despite being early favourites and striking fear into the hungover student competition.
