 Join #TeamAlzScot and be a hero in Purple at Scottish Half Marathon!


We are Scotland's national dementia charity. More than ever, we need to support people living with dementia.


Alzheimer Scotland campaign for the rights of people with dementia and their families and provide an extensive range of innovative and personalised support services.

We’re here when people need someone to listen to them and give emotional support, or when they need practical information and advice. You can pick up the phone to our 24 hour Freephone (0808 808 3000) Dementia Helpline anytime or meet with our Dementia Advisors. We help fund research into dementia prevention, giving hope to future generations.

Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be a devastating and frightening time both for the person with dementia and for their families and friends. 

We can’t make a difference to people living with dementia without fundraisers like you. Every penny you raise will help us make sure nobody faces dementia alone. 




Whether this is your first running event or you’re a seasoned runner, our dedicated events team are here to help.

Sign up to #TeamAlzScot and we’ll provide:  

⭐ Purple Alzheimer Scotland breathable running vest or top

⭐ Comprehensive fundraising pack with training hints 

⭐ Friendly team on the end of the phone to help with your fundraising and keep you informed on how your donations are making an impact

⭐ Warm welcome us at the charity village after the race for celebrations and refreshments!



👉🏽 Scottish Half Marathon: We ask you to pay a registration payment of £35 and raise a minimum sponsorship of at least £500.


If you've been lucky enough to secure your own place, we'd love to welcome you to #TeamAlzScot

There is no minimum sponsorship if you have your own place, but aim high and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve. All you have to do is link your entry to Alzheimer Scotland and we'll be in touch to say hello and provide your fundraising pack.


You understand that Alzheimer Scotland has pre-paid for this event and that failure to reach the minimum sponsorship level or maintain communication with the charity will result in financial loss to the charity and you may be withdrawn from the event if you do not fundraise in advance of the event date. By securing one of our charity places you understand that Alzheimer Scotland will not pay for your travel and accommodation to attend the event. Please note that Alzheimer Scotland may take and/or use photos of you from the race day in our advertising or promotional material. If you do NOT wish your photo to be used please let us know by emailing [email protected] or calling 0131 243 1453.


Thank you for considering Alzheimer Scotland, your support is greatly appreciated.
