A couple of weeks ago we launched a fun competition to keep our runners motivated whilst clocking up the miles for our summer challenge: Running Down Dementia.

The challenge was launched in partnership with parkrun and involves running 100k and raising £100 to power dementia research.

Our #RunningDownDementia runners didn’t disappoint us. We’ve had hundreds of images on social media showing you in all your #RDDSweatySelfie glory.

The team have had a great time going through your pictures and we’re delighted to announce our winners (and a selection of some of the best shots from the campaign).

Thank you to those of you who took part and a special thank you to Fitbit and Tribesport for donating prizes, and parkrun for their support over the last few weeks and inspiring parkrunners to take part.

The winner


A glorious series of emotional shots from Carina Drake wins her a FitBit Blaze.

Runners up


Royston Fenner (and his dog) wins a £75 voucher from our friends at Tribesports.


Zoe Holloway wins a £25 Tribesports voucher after capturing her hair dye running down her face in her #RDDSweatySelfie.
