Run, swim or cycle for dementia research

Take on an incredible challenge in 2020, for that amazing feeling when you know you’ve made a difference.

The Treble Challenge is our brand-new virtual triathlon supported by Garmin. It runs from 1 April to 31 December 2020 and you can choose from our Pioneer distance, an Epic distance or go Maverick and choose your own to suit you. You do the challenge on your indoor equipment or out on the roads, and in your own time – 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).

* While gyms and swimming pools are closed, we encourage you to focus on running and cycling for now – you can get back in the pool when the facilities re-open

Running Down Dementia is our award-winning virtual running challenge in partnership with parkrun. We're challenging you to run 100km (Pioneer), 300km (Epic) or a distance of your choice (Maverick) and raise £100 for cutting-edge dementia research between 1 April to 31 August. You can complete your challenge in any way throughout this time.

Cycling Down Dementia is a virtual cycling challenge taking place between 1 April to 31 August. Ride 300km (Pioneer), 1,500km (Epic) or a distance of your choice (Maverick) and raise £150 or more for vital dementia research.

Swimming Down Dementia is a virtual swimming challenge running between 1 September and 31 October to help to raise much-needed funds to make breakthroughs possible in dementia research for the 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and their families. Swim 10km (Pioneer), 30km (Epic), or a distance of your choice (Maverick).
