No previous experience is required for the London event and with a bit of training the distance should easily be within your capabilities. The spirit of the event is 'taking part' not 'winning' so you can run, jog or walk - you decide!
Simply click the 'Register Online' or 'Request Information Pack' links below to get involved and take part for your favourite charity - they are counting on your support!
*venues and dates are subject to change, suits subject to availability.
The DoitforCharity Super Hero Run will take place on Sunday 13th May 2012*.
The run will take place at Regents Park London*. Regents Park is one of the most beautiful parks in London and is a wonderful setting for your run!
Hundreds of thousands of people take part in runs every year - many of them for the first time. It's therefore perfectly achievable for the 'average' person to take part in this event but to maximise your enjoyment you DO need to train - and that means more than just a couple of jogs in the park!
However, help is at hand in our fitness advice pages where we give you a sample training plan. Your chosen charity may also be able to give you help and support in terms of your training plan but whatever you do don't do nothing!
Running is one of those great sports where you won't need lots of expensive equipment. Admittedly running shoes can be expensive but they should last for around 500 miles which is 8 months on an average 15 miles/week training schedule. Once again help is at hand in the form of our Kit Advice pages where you will learn the importance of choosing the correct running shoes. But it's not enough to just choose the correct shoes - you've got to buy them at least a couple of months before the event itself so that you can wear them in!
Most charities will ask you to raise £100 or more to take part in the Doitforcharity Super Hero Run - the reason for this is that places are extremely limited and the charities obviously want maximum benefit from the places they have been allocated.
However, you shouldn't find it difficult to raise this money - after all you don't run 5km every day do you?! Top tips include asking your employer to match everything else you raise pound for pound and asking people to sponsor you per kilometer (so the minimum you'll get from anybody is £5 which means you only need to find 20 people to reach the £100 fundraising target!)
Once again more advice is available is on doitforcharity.com on our Fundraising Advice pages and your chosen charity should be able to help out as well
Simply click the 'Register Online' link below to claim your place in the DoitforCharity Super Hero Run. Hundreds of charities on doitforcharity.com have places available and as long as you commit to raising the minimum sponsorship they will be delighted to have you running on their behalf!
