Last year thousands of parkrunners signed up to Running Down Dementia and we were blown away by the dedication and passion of the parkrun community – you raised over £220,000 for research!
Running Down Dementia is back this year and it’s bigger than ever! Run 100k and raise £100 this summer and you, together with thousands of runners like you, can strike a blow in the battle against dementia.
As one in three children born this year will develop a form of dementia during their lifetime, we’re powering the fightback with world-class research – but we can only do it with your help.

No matter what your ability, you can pick a challenge that pushes you. Walk, jog or run, celebrate life and get some fresh air while you help power life-changing research. It’s going to be fun!
