What is Jog on dementia?

Jog on dementia is a marathon challenge with a difference. Take on 26.2 miles whenever and wherever you like. Complete the distance in days, weeks or months. The finish time doesn’t matter. It’s about raising vital funds to help finish dementia.

Are there any registration or participation fees?

No – Jog on dementia is free to take part!

Do I have to jog?

No you don’t - you can jog, walk or run your marathon distance or do a mixture of all three!

When do I have to complete my marathon by?

This is your challenge. Set yourself a target as to when you’d like to finish your marathon. We recommend completing your challenge by 31 December 2018 so you don’t miss out on our support! However, if you are unable to take part and wish to take part later, do let us know and we will be able to support you either way.

Is there a deadline for paying in donations?
