Where's Wally? fun run
Join hundreds of others as we return to Victoria Park, London for our second Where’s Wally? fun run on Sunday 16 March 2014.*
Last year saw 1,200 people walking, jogging and running 5 or 10 km. This year we want it to be even bigger!
All are welcome, including children aged eight and over (who must be accompanied by an adult).
We've also something for children who are under eight-years-old this year, with lots of games and activities for them to take part in.
Fun run entry
£20 including a free official Where's Wally? costume.
£10 per child including a free official Where's Wally? costume.
Read our training advice to help you prepare, and information on getting sponsorship. Raising £100 means you will help the National Literacy Trust to continue our important work with children like Mia...
Eight-year-old Mia lives on a tough estate. Her parents can’t read or write so no-one has ever read her a bedtime story. There are no books at home, no bedtime stories and no trips to the library. Mia’s brothers left school with poor literacy and have been unable to get jobs. Recently her eldest brother has been in prison.
But Mia has become the first reader in her family. The National Literacy Trust has worked with her school, holding fun storytelling events and giving books of her own to keep for the first time. We have taken her on a visit to the library and she has become the proud owner of a library card. We will continue to support Mia and work with her secondary school to make sure she has the skills she needs to get a job.
By taking part in the run you can help us work in the poorest communities and give thousands of children like Mia new opportunities. Watch the video of Mia's story.
*Please note this date has changed from 30 March 2014 as previously advertised due to circumstances beyond our control. If you have already booked for 30 March 2014 and have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Put on your own Where's Wally? fun run, wherever you are!

“As a mother of three I believe the most important thing a family can do is spend time together. Sharing books and exercising together are both great ways to do this, and that is why I am supporting the National Literacy Trust’s Where’s Wally? fun run."
