Where's Wally? Peterborough Weekender Q&As

12 Apr 2021

What is the Where’s Wally? Peterborough Weekender?

We are very excited to be holding the very first Where’s Wally? virtual run around Peterborough, kindly sponsored by ISG Construction Ltd. Due to the current restrictions, we are asking you to don the classic red and white stripes and run, walk or jog your own 1k, 5k or 10k route. You can sign up here.

When and where can I take part in the Where’s Wally? Peterborough Weekender?

The Where’s Wally? Peterborough Weekender has now been extended beyond the weekend of 8-9 May 2021 and you can now take part at any time before the end of May. It is a virtual run, so you can take part anywhere and anytime – it is up to you! Just let our team know when you are planning on completing your run, and we will make sure you have everything you need.

Who can take part?

Everyone! Whether you are a seasoned runner, wanting to take on a new challenge, or fancy a fun walk with friends or family, we would love for you to take part in the Where’s Wally? Peterborough Weekender! You can choose whether you run or walk (or a bit of both) and take on the challenge your own way.

How do I sign up?

Visit our Eventbrite page to sign up. Registration includes a Where’s Wally? costume to run in and a collectors finishers medal.

How do I get my Where’s Wally? costume?

Once you sign up, our team will post your costume to you in plenty of time for your run, walk or jog. If you have any questions about the arrival of your costume, please get in touch with our team. You can email Rebecca Parsons at rebecca.parsons@literacytrust.org.uk.

Can we take part as a family or team?

Yes, the Where’s Wally? Peterborough Weekender is a great team challenge. Spread the word and get your friends or family involved! You can create a virtual team, run apart or together within the guidelines. The possibilities are endless and the choice is completely yours!

Is there a fundraising target?

We are encouraging all our runners to raise as much as possible, and everyone who raises at least £50 will be entered into a draw to win some fantastic prizes. The highest fundraiser will win 50 brilliant new books for a Primary School of their choice!

What will my fundraising go towards?

As a charity that exists to change the lives of the UK’s most disadvantaged children, there has never been a more important time for our work. Every penny raised will help support the literacy and learning of children across Peterborough, giving them a route out of poverty and changing their life story.

Do you have any tips to help with my fundraising?

Visit our Where’s Wally? fundraising page, which has plenty of hints, tips and ideas to help you smash your target.

How will the National Literacy Trust know when I have completed my run?

It’s simple, all you need to do is send our team a photo of you at the end of your run, or a photo of your exercise tracker showing your route. You will already have your collectable medal to wear with pride! We wish you the best of luck for your Wally run and hope you enjoy it.
