In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve taken the hard decision to postpone our epic Land’s End to John O’Groats Cycle Relay Challenge until 2021. We want to make it a really brilliant event for our participants and a huge fundraising success for UK-Med, and so with the levels of uncertainty we all face in the current months we’re not sure we will be able to make it the event we want it to be. Our relayists are healthcare professionals facing a very busy and tough couple of months and we want them to have a fantastic time, with time to fundraise and prepare – and so we will run the event over the same weekend next year to take advantage of the long days for cycling. Hopefully this means we’ll be able to make it even bigger and better and more enjoyable for everyone. Thank you to our amazing participants for being so understanding – go team LEJOG 2021!!!
📍 Land’s End – Bristol – Manchester – Glasgow – John O’Groats
1000 miles. 5 relays riders. 4 days. 3 hospitals. 1 challenge.
Natural disasters, disease outbreaks and conflict can hit at any time. The people affected are often the world’s poorest and most vulnerable. We believe that they deserve the highest quality emergency healthcare. With your support, our teams and training can save lives.
Up for the challenge?
Join our relay team to complete the epic route in just four days – usually it takes ten! This is a significant physical challenge which will see cyclists rotating shifts and maintaining a 12mph pace. Our target for the event is £10,000 – enough to pay for a needs assessment team to deploy immediately when a disaster hits and identify the best way for UK-Med to respond. We’re asking each relay cyclist to aim towards raising £2000 for UK-Med – and we’ll be on hand to offer you fundraising advice and support along the way. Sound like the challenge for you? Get in touch.
Join the cheer team
Keen cyclist but don’t fancy the idea of relay shifts on a bike? Help our tired cyclists get back in the saddle by joining our convoys leaving Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow. Join the peloton for the distance of your choosing and get your friends and family to sponsor you for taking part.
Not a cyclist?
If you are passionate about the work of UK-Med but cycling is not your thing, you can still help to welcome our cyclists as they arrive at Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow. Help us raise awareness of UK-Med, coordinate a welcome team in your local community, or just help out on the day – get in touch to offer your support.
Could you volunteer as a driver on our support team?
We’re looking for people to join our support team of ten as we accompany our cyclists along the route. Taking on shifts of driving one of our support vehicles, you’ll be in the thick of this great team event (without needing to peddle!).
