5k May

We’ve teamed up with the creators of the 5k lockdown challenge, Run For Heroes, to bring you #5kMay. The concept is simple: partake, donate, nominate! 

How to take part?

  • Anytime between 1st - 31st May, participate in a 5k (walk, run, cycle, swim, hop, skip or jump! socially distanced of course!)
  • Donate £5 to ELF here: Run for Heroes ( or via this website's Donate button
  • Nominate 5 of your friends via social media to take part too, remembering to tag us (@elfcharity) so we can share!

IMPORTANT: Please ensure to share the link to the ELF donations page when making your 5 nominations!  Run for Heroes (

Once you’ve donated £5 via the link, you’ll unlock a goodie bag packed full of rewards and treats from some major brands.

Get involved as a team!

Mobilise your colleagues, family or friends by getting them involved too. It’s the perfect opportunity to get a group together (either virtually or in a maximum of 6) and encourage them to take part in their own 5k alongside you. 

Please support ELF and celebrate the easing of restrictions by doing good, by giving back and by keeping fit!
