Running Down Dementia

Run 50, Run 100 and Run X are part of Running Down Dementia, an award-winning virtual running challenge from Alzheimer’s Research UK and parkrun, supported by Garmin.

We’re setting you the challenge of running 50km, 100km or a distance of your choice throughout April to raise vital funds and show dementia what you’re made of.

Run to improve your physical health, your brain health, and to make a difference for the 1 in 3 people born in the UK this year who will develop dementia in their lifetime.

Simply pick your distance and set yourself a fundraising target for the challenge. Don’t forget to ask your friends and family to donate to support you.

Be sure to set yourself a fundraising target for the challenge and ask your friends and family to donate to support you. If you raise £50 you'll receive a free pair of shoelaces, raise £100 and you’ll receive a free Alzheimer’s Research UK neckwarmer, and if you raise £200 you’ll receive a free Running Down Dementia running top!
