Take part in a sporting event for Antibiotic Research UK
Why fundraise for ANTRUK?
Antibiotic-resistant infections can affect anyone, and they can be devastating. For an increasing number of people, routine procedures are becoming life-changing experiences. Imagine finding that a simple infected wound cannot be treated with the usual antibiotics, and that it could cause you to become disabled, or even die. This is the reality people with antibiotic-resistant infections face.
We’re committed to funding research to stop antibiotic resistance in its tracks. We are dedicated to supporting everyone affected by antibiotic-resistant infections, now and into the future. We will educate the public, so we can all play our part in stopping this health catastrophe.
It’s important work, but it costs money. We’re grateful for every penny we receive, and we will ensure it’s put to good use.
Antibiotic-resistant infections kill people every day. Thank you for supporting our work.

MyRideLondon – Get on your bike on the 15th and 16th August to support Antibiotic Research UK
Get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, tandem, penny farthing, roller skates or unicycle – and take part in the world’s greatest festival of cycling, wherever you live and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself by taking part in My Prudential RideLondon.
You are invited to complete one (or more!) of four challenges over the weekend:
- 19 miles for riders in search of a challenge

- 100 miles for those who want to go all-out
- or the distance of your choice at My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle.
My Prudential RideLondon is free to enter – simply visit myridelondon.co.uk to register and choose your distance. Just before the event weekend of 15 and 16 August, you’ll be able to download the My Prudential RideLondon app – from here you can track and log your ride.
Check out the My Prudential RideLondon website for more ideas and inspiration, as well as advice on staying safe and cycling responsibly on the road.
Take on your own challenge in your own time
You don’t need to give up on your dreams of taking on a sporting event such as running a marathon or a 10k or cycling 100 miles just because the big events aren’t happening.
It is easier than ever to take on a virtual sporting challenge and with Strava now linking directly to your Just Giving page you can update your supporters on your distances. We can send you a t-shirt, cycling top or running vest and you can make it feel like a real event with friends and family cheering you on along the route.
Alison who walked a marathon up and down her street to raise money for Antibiotic Research UK says “I wanted to do something to support Antibiotic Research UK and celebrate 10 years since I finished cancer treatment for a rare blood cancer so I figured this was my year to do a marathon. The neighbours were all great cheering me on and cheering me up when it got difficult. 10 years ago I was also in lockdown as I was in isolation in hospital – antibiotics saved my life as I was so vulnerable to infection. I was so pleased to complete the marathon and I managed to raise loads of money for charity too.”
