We are excited to introduce the Brainathlon! Yes, that’s right, it’s a triathlon for your brain – no, we’re just kidding, no thinking is required!  The Brainathlon is a new virtual event brought to you in collaboration with our friends at Brain Research UK and Brain Tumour Research.

This is how it works… you can Run 15 miles, walk 10 miles and climb 1.2 miles (or 2, 500 individual stairs) to complete the total 26.2 miles of the Brainathlon. You can take on the challenge on your own, or as part of a relay team of three and you can do all three challenges on one day, or break it up during the week. The choice is yours – all the events all in one day, or share the challenge with friends or family over a few days!

Complete the challenge during Brainathlon Week, Monday 19th April – Sunday 25th April 2021 and raise £100+ per person to receive your specially commissioned Brainathlon medal.

Register for the event below for access to the Brainathlon portal, where you will 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.
