Run Your Age

Ready for a new challenge? Kickstart 2022, raise funds for Age UK and help older people get the support they need.

Sign up now

Run, jog or walk a distance based on your age throughout January 2022. It's your challenge, your way. 

How it works

If you’re 9... about running 9 laps of your local park?

If you're 90...

...climbing 90 steps throughout January should do it.

If you're a fit 30...

...why not run 30 miles over the month of January?

Whatever your age...

...ask friends and family to sponsor your challenge and raise vital funds for Age UK.

It’s your challenge, so do it your way and at your pace.

Run or walk in the park, at home, or on a treadmill. Do it with friends, family or alone. How and where you do it doesn’t matter, what matters is that you’ll be raising much-needed funds for Age UK.

In 2021, Run Your Age raised an astounding £75,000

That's the equivalent of answering 15,000 calls to the Age UK Advice Line from older people needing information and support. We want to do even better this year so we can continue to be there for the people that need us the most. Will you join us?
