5 live takes on Sport Relief challenge

sport_relief_600x272.jpgThe BBC launches this year's Sport Relief campaign this week.  The big weekend itself is March 19-21 and we at 5 live will be playing a bigger part than ever this year.

Eleanor Oldroyd will tell you much more this Thursday night (Jan 21st) between 8-9pm, including details of a Winter Olympics-related 80 mph challenge of her own.

Regular listeners to Stephen Nolan's late night phone-ins will be aware of his on/off battles with his weight. He might already be regretting it but he has committed to a physical challenge of his own which is going to test him to the limit. Stephen will also be on a mission to get as many "un-fit" people as possible to sign up for the Sport Relief mile run.

The 5 live breakfast show will also be embracing this year's efforts. Regular presenter Shelagh Fogarty is a good swimmer, but the challenge she has been set will take it one step further!

Danny Baker also has something up his sleeve for next month which will be every football fan's worst nightmare.

For more on 5 live's Sport Relief efforts in 2010, listen to 5 live sport on Thursday January 21st, 8-9pm, with Eleanor Oldroyd.

We'll be putting up progress updates from presenters here on the blog, so check back later this week.

Jonathan Wall is Commissioning Editor for BBC Radio 5 live
