Denis Law.

Sporting heroes and children’s TV favourites are set to descend on Aberdeen ahead of BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

In the build-up to the huge televised event at P&J Live on Sunday December 15, Aberdeen Sports Village will host the Festival of Sport.

With schoolchildren allowed in to sample the festival on the Friday, ASV will fling open its doors to the public on Saturday 14.

The line-up includes a Q and A with Aberdeen’s Manchester United legend Denis Law and decorated Paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson. Eoin Morgan will host a cricket masterclass while Steve Cram and Allison Curbishley share their commentary experiences.

For those who fancy themselves as long distance runners, the Tumbleator invites visitors to pit themselves against the speed of marathon world record holder Eliud Kipchoge.

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge.

Runners are challenged to find out how long they can last on the 20ft long treadmill at Kipchoge’s amazing speed.
