Preparing for your sponsored run
We recommend you get advice on how to train for your run. If you are not used to running it’s really important that you start gently, and work your way up. Try the free NHS Couch to 5K programme, which has accompanying apps for Android and iPhone.
On the day
The Luton Foodbank 5k Colour Run will take place at 10am on Saturday 22nd April 2017 at Stockwood Park Athletics Centre, London Road, Luton LU1 4LX.
Please arrive by 9.30am to warm up. We will give you a free t-shirt, sunglasses and a number to attach to yourself so you are identifiable as a Foodbank RUNNER!
Our motivators will then lead you to the race zone in the beautiful park.
We will have a DJ to keep you and the supporters entertained on the day and a family run (£5 per family) so everyone can join in the colour fest!
The minimum amount you must raise is £100, so it’s important to start finding sponsors right away. We’ve provided you with two ways to raise money (see below) but you are not limited to these.
- Online with VirginMoneyGiving: This way, you can send a link to your friends, family and other contacts so they can easily sponsor you online, you don’t have to worry about collecting the money from people and how to get it to us, Foodbank receive the money you raise directly from Virgin Giving.

- Sponsorship form: Get your friends and family to fill in their name and details and the amount they want to give on the form. Once the money is collected, please bring it to Luton Foodbank, or send a cheque made out to “Luton Foodbank Ltd”, to PO Box 1379, Luton LU1 9PS. You can download the sponsorship form here. Please send all sponsorship money to Luton Foodbank by 13 May 2017.
Whichever method you choose, please remember to encourage your sponsors to tick the Gift Aid box, as this adds 25% to their donation at no extra cost to them. We need the sponsor form returned to us so we are able to claim the Gift Aid.
