Uni: Sport Aid - Run The World, Plymouth, Devon - 25th May 1986

Sport Aid, otherwise known as "Run The World", was a global sporting event inspired by the previous year's Band Aid. Nearly 20 million people around the world ran, trotted, staggered or walked the six mile course. In Plymouth, several thousand people were out on the streets, including several Plymouth Polytechnic chums and various groups and societies, including the marines from Shaugh Prior (Bickleigh) and a Karate club. There's a bit more about Sport Aid on Wikipedia
