On 3 April 2022, five RCEM runners were among the 12,000 runners who ran 13.1 miles around the streets of London in the fifth edition of the London Landmarks Half Marathon 2022.
Amongst them were five runners fundraising to support funds for RCEM’s charitable work, supporting Emergency Medicine departments internationally in low-income countries, medical research programmes and well-being support for EM staff in the UK.
The London Landmark Half marathon 2022 was the first fundraising event where RCEM have participated as a charity partner. Our runners all successfully completed the route which showcases the best of London, with runners passing iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard and the Tower of London.
RCEMs runners were supported and cheered on at various points on the course by a cheer squad of RCEM staff. It was an amazing atmosphere on a bright but chilly morning and the RCEM runners were all fantastic, all managing to complete the 13.1 miles and all surpassing their fundraising targets with £2415 raised at the time of writing. A big thank you to all five runners for all their efforts in raising funds for us!
