This Summer, join our virtual Race to the Base and help fund our life-saving service.

Cover the distance it takes our critical care team to return to base after flying a patient to hospital. Whether you run, walk or cycle you’ll help power our life-saving service as you complete the distance we need to fly to return to base, to save more lives

Are you ready?

There are two distance options to choose from: 32 miles from the Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI), Newcastle to Teesside HQ airbase or, 42 miles from the RVI to Langwathby, Cumbria airbase.

The distance is set, how you complete it is up to you! And if you want even more of a challenge you could even race to the base and back!

You can do as little as you like, or conquer the challenge all in one day. Are you ready?
