Running, Cycling and Swimming


If you are a seasoned runner, or looking for a new challenge, there are lots of virtual events suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Hopefully we will see the return of in person events later this year too.

By running for the Scottish Cot Death Trust, you are joining #TeamSCDT and helping to make a difference to the lives of those affected by SUDI in Scotland. We will provide you with a running vest, sponsor sheets, advice and encouragement.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us by emailing or clicking on one of the ‘Register your interest’ forms below.

Swimming challenge

If you’re brave enough to take a dip in the chilly water of Scotland, you could use the opportunity to raise funds for us. Pre COVID19, there were Boxing Day or New Year’s Day swims arranged across the country. If your local pool is open,  perhaps you could arrange a Swimathon?
