BMW Berlin Marathon
Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won’t win. Together we can beat it.
The Berlin Marathon will take you through the historic streets of a city where legends are born and made. Over a million spectators will cheer you on as you take on this flat and fast course, an ideal challenge for first-time marathon runners or anyone chasing a PB. Pass some of the best sites this city has to offer and run through the Brandenburg Gate to cross the finish line and become a Berlin legend.
By joining Team Alzheimer's Society, you'll be part of the movement to help end dementia. One person develops dementia every three minutes and too many face it alone. Your support will help us find a cure and achieve our vision of a world without 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.
You can print off a sponsorship form to share with friends and family.
