Royal Parks Half Marathon – 14 October 2018
Join the Virtual Doctors team and take part in a stunning half marathon in 2018.
Royal Parks Half Marathon takes place in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks, Hyde Park, Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens over a superbly organised 13.1 mile route on 14 October 2018.
This is an iconic half marathon that is a “must do” for anyone who has ever considered going the distance to make a difference. Join us and help make change happen for people in rural Africa who may otherwise have to walk even further than this just to reach a health centre, only to discover they have to be referred on for tests to remote hospitals for diagnosis of complex cases.
The public ballot is now closed. If you want to take part you will need to take a pre-paid charity place. Please choose us!
You will need to pay £50 non refundable registration fee to secure a place and then pledge to smash a minimum sponsorship target of £250!
We are a small cash strapped charity. We can’t offer you lots of glossy packs, advanced training days, cheer points, masseurs on the day or even a t-shirt but we can give you lots of encouragement ideas and support and will be letting you know how grateful we are and what an amazing difference your efforts will make.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org TODAY or download the form and return it to us as soon as possible. THESE PLACES WILL GO LIKE HOT CAKES – BE THE FIRST IN THE QUEUE FOR THE START LINE! We will be with you every step of the way..
Not For You?
Tell the organiser you want to raise funds for the Virtual Doctors and then let us know and we will be pleased to offer our advice and support.
Here is a sponsor form to download and use or you can set up a JustGiving page nominating Virtual Doctors as your charity of choice; please advise us when you have done this so we can support you with promoting your page.
Need something more challenging?
A trek, an adventure or an endurance event? How about Charity Challenge or Action Challenge. There is a great selection or either company will be prepared to discuss organising something bespoke if you have something in mind. These are just suggestions. You can sign up for any local sporting event in your area, let us know and become part of our team. We'll support you every step of the way.
Ways some of you have helped already:
Virtual Doctors Executive Business Assistant Lina has lived to tell the tale of the London2Brighton (Quarter) Challenge and says “I’d love to do it again”!!

Ros ran the Great South Run in 1.38.30. She set herself the modest target of £200, a symbolic amount for us at the Virtual Doctors: it is the sum required to equip one remotely based clinical officer in a rural health clinic in Zambia with what he or she needs to access the Virtual Doctors telemedicine service for a whole year. Thanks to the generosity of colleagues, friends and family and with gift aid, she has exceeded that but it’s not too late to help – how many more clinical officers can we equip for a year with your help, dear readers?
