Join us on this exciting virtual run, walk and climb challenge in aid of three leading neurological charities!

What is the Brainathlon?

The Brainathlon is a virtual run, walk and climb event brought to you by three leading neurological charities: Brain Research UK, Brain Tumour Research and Epilepsy Research UK.

Run 15 miles, walk 10 miles and climb 1.2 miles (by walking up 2,500 individual stairs or equivalent) to complete The Brainathlon. You can enter as an individual and do all three parts of the challenge yourself, or as a relay team of three with each person taking on one section.

Complete the challenge during Brainathlon Week, Monday 25th April to Sunday 1st May 2022, and raise £100 per person to receive your specially commissioned Brainathlon Medal.  All funds raised will be divided equally between the three charities to support their inspiring work!
