The great Comic Relief run

Christopher Parker

Events are still going on for Comic Relief; this year's London Marathon takes place next Sunday (17th March) and those running to raise cash include Jo Brand, Christopher Parker and BBC Sport presenter Steve Rider.

Meanwhile Amarillo's chart run continues with a fourth week at the chart summit, this week selling 99,636 copies. This brings its total sales to a phenomenal 758,226.

As we speak Comic Relief HQ is busy calculating the overall total raised this year, a combination of the amount raised at the end of Red Nose Day, the donations from all the sponsored events around the country and extra events like the Comic Relief singles.

The final figure will be announced later this summer.
