LOCATION: Virtually everywhere!

DATE: Brainathlon Half week, Monday 25 October – Sunday 31 October, 2021     

DISTANCE: 7.5-mile run, 5-mile walk, 0.6-mile stair climb (or the equivalent of 1, 250 individual stairs!)


Minimum Sponsorship: £100

Following the phenomenal success of Brainathlon (which raised over £60,000!), we’re back with the second event in the Brainathlon series… Brainathlon Half is a family-friendly relay challenge, raising funds to once again support Brain Research UK, Brain Tumour Research and Epilepsy Research UK.

This is how it works… you can run 7.5 miles, walk 5 miles and climb 0.6 miles (or 1, 250 individual stairs) to complete the total 13.1 miles of the Brainathlon Half. You can take on the challenge on your own, or as part of a relay team of three. You can do all three challenges on one day, or break them up during the week. The choice is yours!

Complete the challenge during Brainathlon Half Week – Monday 25th October – Sunday 31st October 2021 – and raise over £100 per person to receive your specially commissioned Brainathlon Half medal. Raise over £300 and you’ll receive an extra special memento as a thank you!

Register for the event below, you’ll also be able to find all you need to get started – training tips, our Brain Beats Spotify playlist, and of course information on how to submit your evidence to claim your well-deserved medal.
