Raising Awareness of ME in the Heart of London

Invest in ME Research have secured three places in the Royal Parks Half Marathon on 8th October 2017.

This will be a great opportunity for the charity to raise awareness of its strategy of funding high-quality biomedical research and the development of a UK/European Centre of Excellence for ME - and raise awareness of the need for biomedical research into this disease.

This Royal Parks Half Marathon route winds through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and The Green Park) in all their autumnal splendour.

There are 16000 runners in the marathon.

The course is 13.1 miles (21 km) long.

The route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

About Us

Invest in ME Research (IiMER) was set up with the objective of making a change in how ME was perceived and treated in the media, by health departments and by healthcare professionals. We concentrate on three key areas to concentrate our efforts on - funding for biomedical research, education and lobbying. Our aim is to find, fund and facilitate biomedical research into ME.

Invest in ME Research have been working to establish an international strategy of biomedical research into ME and a UK and European Centre of Excellence for biomedical research into ME.
Help us make ME an illness which is properly understood and where high-quality biomedical research into ME is performed allowing treatments and cures to be found.
