We had 107 amazing people running for Team Age UK in 2016. You can read some of their inspiring stories, or watch our highlights video.

Can we count on you to run for Team Age UK?

Our charity places are now full, but if you already have your place we'd love your support.

  1. Once you have your place, create your Age UK fundraising page on JustGiving. Once you're set up we'll introduce you to our team who will support you with your fundraising.
  2. Download the Age UK's sponsorship forms (PDF 1 MB) to manage your offline fundraising.

If you decide not to set up a JustGiving fundraising page, contact us on events@ageuk.org.uk to let us know you're running for us.

You'll get all the benefits but with no target to reach - just raise whatever you can. Running for Age UK means that you're part of a team and won't be alone as you take on this exciting challenge.
