Join Alzheimer's Research UK for the TCS London Marathon

“My hope for the future is that no family has to live through dementia. Research needs to be funded desperately” – Scott Mitchell, Alzheimer’s Research UK Ambassador

We are the UK’s leading dementia research charity. We firmly believe in the power of research to end the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.

When you join #TeamARUK, we will do our utmost to reward all your efforts with an exceptional TCS London Marathon experience. 

From tailored coaching and free use of a training app to a hero's reception just metres from the Finish Line, we are with you every step of the way.

2022 is a particularly special year to join #TeamARUK. This year, all your fundraising will be directed to our incredibly exciting EDoN initiative, which is set to revolutionise dementia diagnosis.

To have the best chance of halting the diseases that cause dementia, we need to intervene decades earlier, when they first start to take hold.

Ultimately, EDoN will develop and test a digital device that can pick up these ‘fingerprints’ in people who don’t have any obvious symptoms of dementia. This could transform research efforts, helping scientists to make faster breakthroughs in understanding the diseases that cause dementia and enabling them to test potential new preventions and treatments.

We would love for you to join us in making this possible, so use your marathon place to run for Alzheimer’s Research UK today. To find out more, click here.
