Important Update: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the Edinburgh 5K has been postponed until Saturday 5 September 2020.

If you are already signed up to the Alzheimer’s Society team we will be contacting you by email with further information and your options. 

Registration is still open for the rescheduled date, and you can sign up now to join Team Alzheimer’s Society.

We will, of course, continue to offer all our usual training and fundraising support to runners throughout this time. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
 

Based in the historic town of Edinburgh, the Edinburgh Marathon Festival is an event for runners of all backgrounds and abilities, with people able to take part in different races across the weekend. Take part in this 5k and unite with us against dementia.

Join our team today!

By joining Team Alzheimer's Society, you'll be part of the movement to help end dementia. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted in their community. For instance, £100 could fund one of our National Dementia Helpline advisors to provide 7 hours of emotional support, personal advice and vital information to people affected by dementia. 

When you run for us, you'll receive:

  • a support pack with fundraising help and materials
  • 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

We know that fundraising can be just as challenging as the event, but we’ll be here to support you every step of the way. When you sign up to run for us, you will receive a support pack with tips and advice to help you with your fundraising, allowing you to make a difference to people living with dementia.

To kick-start your fundraising in the meantime, why not set up a JustGiving page?

You can also print off a sponsorship form to share with friends and family.

If you have cheques that you need to send in to us, please use our paying in form and post to:

Want to get friends and family involved? You could organise a sweepstake, where each player makes a donation to guess your finishing time and whoever picks the closest time wins a small prize of your choice.
