Run through Alton Towers for aortic dissection

Experience the thrill of running through one of the UK’s most iconic theme parks at the Run Alton Towers event! With a range of distances available to suit all abilities, there’s no better way to combine your love for running and excitement for roller coasters. Participants can choose from a variety of distances, including a kids race, 5K, 10K and half marathon ensuring there’s an option for the whole family.

The Run Alton Towers event offers a unique opportunity to race through the beautiful grounds of the Alton Towers Resort, passing by world-famous roller coasters and attractions as you make your way along the course. The scenic routes will take you through enchanting woodland trails, around serene lakes, and past breathtaking views of the stunning Staffordshire countryside.

After completing your chosen distance, celebrate your accomplishment with friends and family at the finish line festival, where you can relax, refuel, and enjoy the post-race festivities. All finishers will receive a bespoke medal, a commemorative t-shirt, a goody bag filled with treats, and free access to all of the incredible rides in the park.

Sign up today and make unforgettable memories while conquering your running goals at Alton Towers!

I lost my cousin at 55 through this and I believe something could have been done to prevent her death.


My brother died of this, the hospital he was in THE DAY BEFORE HE DIED did not diagnose this or check for this.
