Virtual 5K

Spread the smiles as you complete the miles by taking part in our BRAND NEW Virtual 5K

Do our Virtual 5K your way. Whether you want to walk, run, skip, hop, dance or swim the distance, we’re encouraging all our supporters to get involved and help spread the smiles as you complete the miles.

What is the Rainbows Virtual 5K?

Our Virtual 5K is whatever you want it to be, it can be a walk with the dog around the park, lengths in the swimming pool, a run or dance. All we ask, is that you complete 5K. Whether this is done in one go or over multiple days is your choice, do it your way!

How do I raise money for Rainbows?

The medals have kindly been donated, so 100% of your entry fee will go towards the vital work we do here at the hospice, supporting children and young people with a life-limiting condition and their families. We’d love it, if you’d like to raise money while taking part in the challenge too and you can find our Sponsorship Form by clicking the button below.

For those who raise £100 (or more), we’ll send you one of our running tops which you can wear with pride while taking part.

However you take part in your 5K, please do share your photos with us across social media – simply by tagging us in on Facebook (@rainbowsfanpage), Twitter (@rainbowshospice) and Instagram (@rainbowshospice) as we love to see them and share the fantastic work you’re doing to support us - and don't forget to include #Rainbows5K
