Are you interested in doing your own fun run but not sure where to start?

We’ve added some ideas below that might inspire you:

  • Are you already part of a local hiking or running club? Why not suggest that everyone dresses up as Where’s Wally? for one of your sessions.
  • Bring a group along to take a Where’s Wally? themed walking tour of your local town, stopping off at your favourite spots along the way. Make sure to tag us in any pictures on social media.
  • Use the Where’s Wally? Fun Run as your spring work social! Run together through your local park and end the day at your local pub for a celebratory drink as wallys! 
  • Dress up for one of your walks with the dog and encourage your friends to join you.

Do you have an idea for your own Where’s Wally? Fun Run but you're still not sure how to bring it to life? Email us at and we can help you organise it.
