Children's author and presenter Konnie Huq will be cheering on participants in this year's Where's Wally fun run in London
On 15 March 2020, hundreds of all-age runners and book lovers will dress up as children’s book character Where’s Wally? and run, jog or walk to raise money for the National Literacy Trust.
With Where’s Wally? publisher Walker Books and famous faces like Konnie Huq supporting the event, its eighth year is set to be bigger than ever.
Last year, around 1,000 red-and-white-striped runners aged between one and 84 years old made their way round Clapham Common, raising over £30,000 to help change the lives of disadvantaged children in the UK though literacy. In honour of the 2020 Olympic Games, this year’s fun run will take place at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Participants will be able to choose between a 5K or 10K run, with a 1K option for children under 12 years old. After the race, goodie bags will be given out and runners will have the opportunity to meet children’s author and presenter Konnie Huq.
