Game to 5K

What is Game to 5K?

Game to 5K encourages children to swap the games consoles for their running shoes and run a 5K for Wooden Spoon.

By taking part, they will be funding life-changing projects that make a real difference to vulnerable children, young people and their families.

How to get involved


  1. Set up a fundraising page for your child via JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving to raise money for Wooden Spoon.
  2. Begin training! Top tip: Start with smaller distances and build up day by day.
  3. Let us know when the 5K has been completed and we will send your child a special Wooden Spoon medal and certificate!

Join our legends board

Show off your child’s fantastic achievement by sending us their photo to add to our legends board!

Please make sure that you refer to latest government guidance on Covid-19 for EnglandScotlandWales and Northern Ireland to help you in planning for your safe and successful fundraising activities.
