Take on the Barcelona Marathon and feel amazing about giving help and hope to people living with dementia.
The Barcelona Marathon is one of the most popular in Europe. The course takes you through the centre of the city and includes main landmarks such as the Camp Nou (the home of Barcelona FC), Sagrada Familia, the Parc du Cuitdadella and finishing a short distance from La Rambla.
With very few hills or inclines, the course is very flat and fast, and suits first time runners, or those going for a PB.
Running for Alzheimer’s Society
We'd love to welcome you to team Alzheimer's Society to join thousands of other who are determined to stop dementia devastating lives. You’ll need to pay a registration fee of £26 and set a fundraising target of £400. We'll be there to support you every step of the way.
When you run for us, you'll receive:
- a free running top to wear on race day
- detailed training guides for different abilities and personalised support from our experts
- access to a Facebook group where you can chat to other runners
- support from our dedicated events team to help you smash your fundraising target
Fundraising for Alzheimer's Society
We know that fundraising can be just as challenging as the event, but our expert team will be on hand to help. We’ll be in regular contact with support, advice and ideas.
Kick-start your fundraising by setting up a JustGiving page. You can easily share your page with your friends, family and colleagues on social media and email, plus everything happens automatically.
The money you donate is sent to us, Gift Aid collected, and your sponsors thanked. Job done!

Frequently asked questions
You can order your top when you complete our registration form by contacting the team here with your size (XS to XXL) and style (vest/t-shirt).
If you have let us know your size, we will send your top to you in the post approximately a month before race day.
We’ll send out a link to our Training Zone by email. Here you will find our training guide and plans for every ability plus loads of other advice covering areas including nutrition, injuries and tapering.
We’ll also give you contact details for our expert running coaches, so you get in touch directly with any questions.
If you’re collecting money on a JustGiving page, there’s nothing you need to do, your sponsorship comes directly to us.

- Pay the donations directly onto your JustGiving page if you have one.
- Pay in online using our secure payment page.
- Send a cheque made payable to Alzheimer’s Society to Alzheimer’s Society, Scott Lodge, Scott Road, Plymouth, PL2 3DU. Please include our paying in form so we have your event details.

We ask that you please send in all donations within 6 weeks of the event.
The fundraising target for charity places is still £400 per person but you're welcome to combine your targets into one team total.
This event is open to everyone aged 18 or over on race day.
