Whip out your onesie for a novel way to see the City
One might be wearing one's onesie to keep oneself warm on a chilly winter's night. But as the evenings stay lighter for longer and the sun's subtle rays begin to penetrate through our windows once more, what use is a onesie in springtime?

Well, if you registered to take part in the London Onesie 5k Dash, it could help you raise money for charity.

That's because on Sunday 10 March an army of grown-up Londoners will tear through 5 kilometres of the city's streets dressed in adult baby grows, all in the name of Comic Relief. And if haring around a top-speed isn't your bag, partakers are also encouraged to walk at a 'leisurely pace'.

I would donate just to stand on the edge of the road and watch – and you can. The charity fun run starts and finishes at Minster Court and in between you'll meander around the Tower of London, over Tower Bridge, pass City Hall and London Bridge, and cross Southwark Bridge.

The route of the 5k Onesie Dash

New research estimates that 1 in 8 people own an adult romper suit. If that's true, 1 million Londoners are already well on their way to getting involved with this fun run – great news, as the more people who take part means a larger sum of money goes towards the good cause.

But those onesie virgins out there; don't think you've got off lightly because there's still time to buy a romper suit from a little as £1 from online sites such as Ebay so no excuses.

One in eight adults own a onesie

It costs just £27 per person to register and become part of Comic Relief 2013. All participants will receive a goodie bag and certificate and there will even be awards for those with the best onesies. Click here to download a Red Nose Day Fun Raiser sponsorship form and help raise even more money. All participants must register by 4 March.

So are you ready? On your marks. Three, two, onesie… GO.
