As a sports cardiologist you'd think I would have run a half marathon before - nope! I have only ever ran a 10km vitality event so the plan is to simply get to the finish line of the London Landmarks half marathon - taking place 3rd April 2022.

I'm taking part and fundraising for my NHS trust - The Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity - as they support fantastic research in recreational athletes and individuals with cardiovascular disease who would like a safe exercise prescription.

Wish me luck - and thank you for donating!

Running is an important part of my week, helping me to unwind after work and keep fit! It is important that we practice what we preach to our patients, so Sabiha and I have decided to take part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon!
 It is also fantastic to be able to help raise money for the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity. During my time at Royal Brompton and Harefield, I have had many great opportunities to do some fantastic research in cardiomyopathy and cardiovascular magnetic resonance. So much of our research that has helped patients with cardiomyopathy has been supported by the Charity, so it is great to be able to give back! Sabiha Gati
