We are delighted to be the official charity partner of The Classic at Silverstone!


Taking place over the August bank holiday weekend (26 – 28 Aug) at the home of the British Grand Prix, this fun-packed festival celebrates all things historic motors! This year, The Classic will honour the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by celebrating ‘The Best of British’.

Get involved in the action and show your support for Alzheimer's Research UK.

Lace up and step onto the iconic Grand Prix circuit on Friday 26 August for a fun run. It’s open to anyone aged 10 and above, but runners must be able to complete the distance (5.14k) within 50 minutes. All funds raised will help to fund life-changing dementia research.

To take part:

  • You’ll need to be in possession of a ticket for The Classic event on Friday 26 August.
  • You must be aged 10 and over and be able to complete the 5.14k run within 50 minutes.

Need a little encouraging? We’re giving away an official Alzheimer’s Research UK running vest or t-shirt to anyone who goes the extra mile by setting up a fundraising page and raising £100 for dementia research!

Remember that great road trip?

Losing our memories is one of the most common symptoms of dementia. At Alzheimer’s Research UK, we want to protect our treasured memories from dementia and one way we’re doing that is raising awareness of our groundbreaking work.

Whether you can join us in person at the event or not, we want you to get involved!

We’re inviting you to share your #BestRoadTripMemories

Remember filling up the car and heading off for an adventure with family or friends? No matter how chaotic, unexpected, long or tiring these trips turn out, we treasure the memories made and often have an anecdote to tell.

1. Share your #BestRoadTripMemories and help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s Research UK.

2. Tag us in a picture from your road trip using #BestRoadTripMemories for the chance to get your pictures featured on the big screens at The Classic!
