Frequently asked questions

When will I receive my running top?

You can order your top when you complete our registration form or by emailing [email protected] 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.

When will I receive training support?

We’ll send out a link to our Training Zone in your welcome emails. 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.

How do I pay in my fundraising?

If you’re collecting money on a JustGiving page, there’s nothing you need to do, your sponsorship comes directly to us.

If you have collected any cash, you can bank it and pay in using one of these options: 

  • 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.
  • Pay over the phone with a credit or debit card. Call our lovely customer care team on 0330 333 0804.

When do I need to pay in my fundraising?

We ask that you please send in all donations within 6 weeks of the event.

Can I fundraise in a team?

Of course! Please let us know when you sign up by creating a team. Your team members can then join you by clicking on the ‘find’ button and typing in either the team captain’s name or your team name.

The fundraising target for charity places is still £250 per person but you're welcome to combine your targets into one team total.
