Drag Race for Sport Relief 2012

Local drag divas run a ‘Drag Queen Mile’ to gear up for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile this March

Charles Street is getting all revved  for Sport Relief with its very own drag race – but these queens will be running on heels not wheels! Charles Street’s ‘ladies’ pulled their Sport Relief Socks up, donned their deeley boppers and made a dash down the parade of gay bars in the heart of Cardiff city centre to stage their very own version of the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile – with a glitzy twist!

The drag racers, a very talented bunch of female-impersonators, cabaret performers and comediennes, were warming up in preparation for the Cardiff Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday the 25th March where thousands of runners are expected to run one, three or six miles around the Bay route.

The fabulous Miss Kitty a regular performer at Wow bar and club in Cardiff said: “I’m not in the habit of running in my heels but I thought I’d make an exception for Sport Relief and add a bit of sparkle to the campaign! Me and the girls have had loads of fun today and we can’t wait to get our lycra on for the big event in March!”

The risk of twisted ankles and broken fingernails was high but the girls bravely stepped up to the challenge and put their all into the race, bringing some Charles Street glamour to the Sport Relief campaign. This year, over one million people are expected to pull up their Sport Relief socks and take part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile to raise vital funds for vulnerable people across the UK and the world’s poorest countries. Enter the Cardiff Mile, or one of dozens of Mile events happening all over Wales, right now at
