Where’s Wally? Runners' Zone

Where's Wally

Welcome to the Where's Wally? runners’ zone, where you will find all the information you will need for race day. Now that you’ve signed up, its time to prepare for the big day.

Help us raise money to make a difference to children across the country

We need your help to raise as much money as possible to fund a variety of literacy programmes, community initiatives and impactful, regional events that will change children’s life stories. When you register for your Where's Wally? Fun Run, you should receive a link to JustGiving with an invitation to set up your own fundraising page. Share your page with your friends and family, spread the word and start fundraising to give yourself an extra boost of encouragement and motivation for the big charity race day.

  • £50.00 could help train a volunteer to work with parents with low literacy levels and give them the skills to help develop their child’s literacy and communication skills.
  • £100.00 Could help seven teenagers improve their literacy and communication skills, enabling them to find a good job when they leave school.
  • £280.00 could inspire a class of children to read for pleasure through a ten-week motivational programme working with Premier League footballers.

Wally prize draw

Everyone who raises over £100 will be put into a draw to win some great prizes.
