Sport Relief Mile: MM meet the stars involved in Manchester charity race

Greater Manchester came together on Sunday for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile.

This year X Factor’s Olly Murs was there to spur on the Manchester runners with a live performance.

The day saw a series of races of various distances to suit as many people as possible, encouraging Manchester residents to do their bit for Comic Relief 2012.
