Another story from last year’s Sports Relief (2009)
Sport Relief Mile: Cardiff
BBC One Wales
Saturday 15 July – 10.30amLook out for stars of Doctor Who – including a Dalek – pounding the city streets.
Sport Relief Milers in Cardiff have got a very special bonus as one of the waves will have a Doctor Who theme.
It’ll feature stars from the current series and the show’s glorious past, as well as a very special guest appearance from a life size Dalek.
Camille Coduri – who plays Rose’s mum Jackie Tyler in the hit BBC TV series – will be among those pounding the streets around Cardiff City Hall on July 15.
Frazer Hines who played Jamie McCrimmon, Sarah Sutton who starred as Nyssa and Nicola Bryant who played Peri Brown will also be going the Extra Mile.
You can sign up to join them by registering for the Cardiff Mile and joining up with The Doctor Who team.
Sport Relief want as many people as possible to sign up and come down dressed as their favourite characters from the show, but don’t worry if you don’t want to dress up as there is plenty of room for everyone on the day.
The Dalek is being brought to Cardiff by Bob Johnson, who designed as his costume for the 2006 London Marathon. Bob, from Milton Keynes, completed the course in 7hrs 28mins, and hopes to cover the Cardiff mile in under 20 minutes.
“I am changing the design a little bit for the Sport Relief Mile it’s getting a slight revamp,” he says.
“I can’t go very fast in it though but that doesn’t matter it’s going to be a really great fun day for all the family.”
In the London Marathon Bob raised £10,000 for a cancer hospice in his Milton Keynes and hopes to raise another £5,000 for Sport Relief by auctioning the Dalek on Ebay after he completes the Cardiff mile.
“I can’t wait, it’s going to be brilliant and hope lots of people get dressed up and come up and say hello to the Dalek,” he adds.
“It’s also a good chance for people to see the Dalek and if they like it they can put in a bid on Ebay afterwards – as all the money raised will be going directly to Sport Relief.”
Also taking part in the Cardiff event are Welsh rugby legends JJ Williams, Rob Howley, Gareth Davies and Ray Gravell, along with boxing champ Enzo Maccarinelli and MTV stars Pancho & Pritchard of Dirty Sanchez fame.
