Frequently Asked Questions…
When and where
The 2013 DoitforCharity Superhero run will take place on
Sunday 19th May in London's Regents Park.
This parkland venue offers a perfect setting for you to enjoy your
run on behalf of The Royal British Legion!
How fit do I need to be?
Hundreds of thousands of people take part in 5km
and 10km 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 in order 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 the form of the www.doitforcharity.com
fitness pages where we give you a sample training plan
- The Royal British Legion will also be able to give you help
What kit will I need?
Running is one of those great sports where you won't
need lots of expensive equipment. A good pair of running shoes
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 www.doitforcharity.com
kit pages where you will learn the importance of choosing the
correct shoes. Please note however that it's important that you buy
them at least a couple of months before the event itself so that
have a chance to wear them in!
Both male and female Superhero costumes will be provided for
you on the day - free of charge so don't forget to pick one up!
Alternatively you are more than welcome to bring your own costume -
all superhero's are welcome!
How can I raise the sponsorship money?
Most charities will ask you to raise £100 or more to take
part in the Doitforcharity 5km or 10km run - the reason for this is
that places are extremely limited and the charities obviously want
maximum benefit from the places they have been
However, you shouldn't find it difficult to raise this
money - after all you don't run 5km or 10km every day do you?!
Top tips include asking your employer to match everything you
raise pound for pound. Also you could ask 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
You can create your own personal fundraising page on
where people can simply donate on-line.
Once again more advice is available is on www.doitforcharity.com
on the fundraising advice pages and The Royal British Legion
should be able to help out as well.
What do I need to do next?
Simply complete the enclosed registration form or register
online at www.doitforcharity.com

sponsorship The Royal British Legion will be delighted to have
you running on their behalf!
