It was game on for queens Blü Romantic and Petite as they raced against the athletes in their best drag and brightest wigs to encourage people across the West Midlands to get their kit on and do their bit for the charitable appeal.

Swapping killer heels for comfortable trainers, the drag queens sprinted around the track to narrowly beat the the students at the finish line.

Petite said: "It's not every day we swap a stage and lights for a running track, but if you can't do it for Sport Relief when can you?

"We hope that we've shown people that absolutely anybody can get their kit on and do something important for this charity."
