Dr Chand was joined by fellow GPs including south London's Dr Louise Irvine, who chairs the Save Lewisham Hospital community campaign group, and Lancashire GP Dr David Wrigley, who is also a GPC member and Keep Our NHS Public campaigner.
North Yorkshire's Clive Peedell, BMA Council member, consultant oncologist and co-leader of the National Health Action party, ran 42 miles from Leeds to Manchester for the event.
Dr Chand said: 'It was a fantastic day. We need to keep the Save Our NHS message alive by highlighting the cuts and privatisation that threaten to break up the NHS, campaigning for patient safety and safe staffing levels, campaigning against NHS money going into private profits, and lobbying for transparency and openness from all providers.
'The NHS should always be a preferred provider if possible.'
