Calvin Payne, the much loved host of our Communities Live show on Wednesdays, will be running in the Sheffield Half-Marathon on Sunday 6th April – and he’s doing it to raise money for Sheffield Live!

Calvin’s never taken part in a half-marathon before, and admitted he’s nervous about the distance.

“I’m aiming to complete the race just inside three hours – and looking forward to talking with other running virgins during the race.”

So if you’re running the half marathon for the first time look out for Calvin in his Sheffield Live! t-shirt and make sure you say hello.

You can sponsor Calvin’s run, which will be a huge effort on his part – and all sponsorship raised will support Sheffield Live! – going towards the costs of bringing you our wonderful, varied and diverse schedule of content.

When you sponsor Calvin, please send a short email of support. Thank you!
