Enjoyed Running Down Dementia or Donate Your Time? If you had fun taking on these challenges vote for us in The Running Awards 2017.

 

The charity has already beaten tough competition from across the UK to make it to the final few in the Large Charity category and Running Down Dementia has made it to the last handful of competitors in the New Running Event category and the Online Community category.

 

We know how many of you had a rewarding experience taking part in Running Down Dementia, so why not cast your vote now?

 

Go to:

Charity > Large Charity > Alzheimer’s Research UK

Running Events > New Event > Running Down Dementia

Community > Online Community >Running Down Dementia

 

And of course, don’t forget to vote for parkrun in the Event Series category:

Running Events > Event Series > parkrun

 

The winners are solely based on votes from the public, so both Alzheimer’s Research UK and parkrun need as many of you to vote as possible. You can also share the link with friends and family.

 

Winners will be announced on 20 April at The O2 in London.
