parkrun Dementia Project

group shot of parkrunners from the back

We are continually striving to bring the benefits of parkrun to more and more people with impairments. Over the next few months, we’ll be reaching out to the parkrun community to talk with people with particular impairments, along with their friends, family and any parkrunners who might be able to contribute knowledge and experience from their professional lives. We want to understand from them what we can do to make parkrun more welcoming and accommodating of their particular needs.


We’re now turning our attention to those affected by dementia or related conditions.  If you, or your friends or family have experience of dementia or related conditions in a parkrun context and would be willing to contribute to the project we’d love to hear from you.  We’d also like to hear from any parkrunners who work professionally in this area.


Simply click here and answer a few very short questions.


Further information about the wider project can be found here.
