parkrun

We're a proud partner of parkrun, organisers of free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the UK.

As a team, we aim to both encourage people to lower their risk of developing dementia through regular exercise and raise money for crucial research to defeat dementia – a condition affecting more than 850,000 people across the UK today.

We are proud to have the backing of parkrun and together we’re inviting you to join #TeamARUKparkrun and help us take a step closer to a world free from dementia.

You can help us power the fightback against dementia by taking on Running Down Dementia. Join our movement of runners by signing up to this virtual challenge and run 100km and raise £100 this summer. Make the challenge your own: you can complete it in five days, five weeks or five months, the choice is yours. You can even take on the challenge with friends and set up a running team.
