parkrun

We're proud to partner with 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.

Why not use your running to boost funds for vital research? Or dive into a swimming challenge or tackle a triathlon? Alzheimer’s Research UK has charity places in lots of prestigious events for you to apply for.
