Become a Treble-maker to make breakthroughs possible


Fancy taking on a new challenge and putting your fitness to the test? Show dementia what you’re made of with The Treble Challenge.


We’re so excited to launch our new triathlon challenge. We’re challenging you to swim, cycle and run distances you’ll be proud of between April 1 and December 31 while raising money for pioneering dementia research.


You can choose the Pioneer challenge (100km running, 500km cycling and 10km swimming), Epic challenge (300km, 1,500km, 30km) or Maverick challenge (distances of your choice).


It doesn’t matter if you’re a fitness fanatic or a complete beginner, the Treble is all about setting and smashing your own targets.


You do the challenge your way, in your own time – you can clock up the kilometres anywhere and in any order.


We just ask that you choose distances that will challenge you, because the harder people see you working, the more they’ll want to sponsor you – and every pound raised helps make breakthroughs possible in dementia research.


Anyone who raises £400 will receive a free triathlon kit pack, which includes a technical running T-shirt, cycling vest, swimming cap and neckwarmer. Participants will also receive a medal at the end of their challenge.


So grab your goggles, pull on your trainers and gear up for The Treble Challenge. Sign up here.


The new challenge follows on the back of our successful Running Down Dementia, Cycling Down Dementia and Swimming Down Dementia campaigns. This year’s Running Down Dementia also starts on April 1, so if you’d prefer to focus on testing your running mettle then this is the challenge for you. You can sign up here.

A godsend for everyone

A year on from open heart surgery, former international athlete Clare Wyngard explains how the inclusive nature of parkrun has played a vital role in her recovery.   In the spring of 2018 I was an experienced international age group triathlete and duathlete.  Running was my strongest discipline and I had won individual British Masters titles…
