Charity 5K Run for the Princess Alice Hospice
We are excited to announce that the 13th Run will take place as the Mundays Virtual Charity 5K Fun Run. We encourage you to make a donation to the Princess Alice Hospice in Esher through our dedicated Just Giving page. The Hospice have provided free end of life care to adult patients since 1985. We have raised over £61,000 to date.
This event replaces the event we normally hold in May each year which we cancelled due to Covid-19.

Over 200 people normally take part in our annual Charity 5K, including both elite runners, teams from local businesses and families. Our team support it in a number of ways including running, marshalling, time keeping or baking for the popular cake stall! The Run is an opportunity for people to contribute to this cause whilst having fun and getting fit and we are pleased to hold the event as a virtual run this year.
WHEN, WHERE AND HOW
The virtual Run will be held from 1 to 31 October 2020. We will post a leader board on Twitter, and encourage you to enter as a team challenge or individually. You can run whenever you want in October, on any 5K course that you choose, just send us your details and finishing time. If you need help mapping out a 5K course, try mapometer.
There is no entry fee. Please enter by visiting our website or by emailing us at email@example.com with the following details by no later than 1700 on Saturday 31 October 2020:
- Your name.
- Your team or company name.
- Your email address.
- Your address for posting your medal to (see below under “Medals”).
- Your time for the 5K which you have run during October (whether timed on Strava or otherwise). We will take entered times in good faith on the leader board.
- We encourage you to send a message and photos of you or your team mates or supporters enjoying your run (socially distanced or within your household group and/or support bubble) – please note, these may be posted on the Mundays website or social media channels.
Do also mention us on Twitter or Instagram. However, entries should be emailed to us as per above.
You can enter as many times as you wish – so you could post times each week during October (we will take your best result).
Entries will be open until 1700 on Saturday 31 October 2020. We will announce the results during the week ending Friday 6 November 2020.
The first 250 runners (one medal per person) will receive an exclusive 2020 Mundays 5K medal, so please remember to send us your home address or team address if you are co-ordinating between you.
Please make an donation if you are able to do so to support the Hospice. If you wish to make a donation without entering the race or you wish to set up a sponsorship page of your own, please visit our Just Giving page.
Normally we hold the 5K in Painshill Park, Cobham, but we encourage you to run 5K anywhere safe.
