Spring Wolf Run
Date: Saturday 22nd-Sunday 23rd April 2023
Registration fee: from £60
Fundraising target: as much as you can! Set up and share your own fundraising page for Dementia UK
Kick off 2023 with an event to inspire and challenge you. The Spring Wolf Run, with its thick, muddy trails and exhilarating obstacles, is the perfect event to clear the cobwebs after the winter break. Try out the 5km route to get a taste of what the event is all about or push yourself further with the ultimate 10km route. Run as a lone wolf or assemble a pack: every fifth runner goes free!
Register for your Wolf Run place below for a fantastic 2023 challenge. To let us know you’re taking part, set up your JustGiving page for Dementia UK or get in touch with the Events Team. To request your bespoke Dementia UK sports top, please email us, including your size (XS-2XL).
- support from our Fundraising Team
- a fundraising guide along with fundraising advice, hints and tips in the build-up to the event
- a branded Dementia UK sports top
- a range of Dementia UK fundraising materials such as collection buckets, posters and balloons to make any events you hold look amazing
Every penny you raise from your event will help our dementia specialist Admiral Nurses provide a lifeline to more families facing dementia – and we’re here to support you every step of the way.
Organising another fundraising activity alongside your main challenge will help you smash your goal. Here are some ideas:
- host a quiz
- arrange a raffle
- hold a sweepstake on how long your challenge will take, or the distance you’ll achieve
- organise a bake sale at home, at work or in your community
- create a sponsored playlist, where supporters donate to add their choice of song
Your fundraising welcome pack
Once you’ve signed up for your challenge, we’ll send you a fundraising welcome pack that’s full of advice on how to meet – and beat – your target.
Setting up a JustGiving page is a great way to fundraise online. Share your link with family, friends and colleagues, and watch the donations roll in.
You can use JustGiving to explain why you’re taking on your challenge for Dementia UK, keep track of how much you’ve raised, and even share your training progress using Strava so your supporters can see how well you’re doing. The more you update and share your JustGiving page, the more donations you’ll receive.
If your supporters are UK taxpayers and their donation is voluntary (not proceeds of a sale), we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated – at no extra cost to them. Make sure they fill in the Gift Aid form in your fundraising pack or tick the correct boxes if they’re donating online.
Sending in your donations
If you’re fundraising through JustGiving, the donations will automatically come to us. If you’ve got cash to pay in, you can do this online, by phone, by bank transfer or by post.

Andy, who took on an endurance challenge for Dementia UK
I chose to support Dementia UK as my mother-in-law has dementia and it does take a real toll on the life of all involved. Giving a little back to the Admiral Nurses, who help make life that bit easier, took no thinking about at all.
