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. 

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:

I already have a place in this race, can I still run for you?
Absolutely! Both those with charity places, and their own places are welcome on to our team. We’d love to help you prepare for this race, and send you a fundraising pack, training plan, running top and other helpful information for the big day! Please fill out our online form to get started.

Will I have a minumum fundraising target if I join the team with my own place?
No, if you secured a place through the race organiser, you'll have no minimum fundraising target. You'll receive all the same fantastic support as our charity place runners and we simply ask that you raise as much as you can to change the lives of people affected by dementia.
