CALL OF THE WILD

Blaze a trail with your miles! Hit the trails, pound the streets and celebrate World Wildlife Day (3/3/22) by planting trees with your miles and protecting vital wildlife habitats. Every challenge changes the planet for good.

THE GREAT APES RACES

Help save the habitat for some of our closest relatives, the Great Apes. Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Bonobos and Orang-Utans are all under threat as much of their forest habitats are being lost to human activities such as agriculture, mining, and commercial logging. We’re racing to fight that trend. Every race you complete will plant trees in Africa, DRC and Indonesia.

GREAT APES: ORANGUTAN

Orangutans are the largest tree-climbing mammals in the world. Their name translates to ‘person of the forest’. However their forest habitats in Indonesia are rapidly disappearing due to illegal logging and the clearing of land for palm oil production, putting them in great peril. These beautiful mammals play a vital role in maintaining the health of the forest ecosystem, and they urgently need our action. Available: 5k, 10k, Half marathon, Full marathon, 50 mile and 75 mile challenges.

GREAT APES: CHIMPANZEE

Chimpanzees are found across Central Africa, but they have already disappeared from 4 African countries, and are nearing extinction in many others. Deforestation and commercial hunting for bushmeat are hitting most populations. We share 99% of our DNA with Chimpanzees and research shows they are more closely related to us than to Gorillas. Available: 5k, 10k, Half marathon, Full marathon, 50 mile and 75 mile challenges.

GREAT APES: GORILLA

Gorillas are found in east central and equatorial west Africa. They are one of the most powerful and striking animals, not only for their size and force, but also for their gentle human like behaviour. Sharing 98% of our DNA. They play a crucial role in local biodiversity, roaming through large territories and helping to spread the seeds of the fruit they consume. Available: 5k, 10k, Half marathon, Full marathon, 50 mile and 75 mile challenges.

GREAT APES: BONOBO

Bonobos, arguably our closest relatives, live only in the Congo Basin rainforests of central Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). We share over 99% of our DNA with them. They are similar to Chimpanzees but smaller, slender and with thinner lips. The forests within the Congo Basin are under threat from logging, palm oil plantations and population growth. Available: 5k, 10k, Half marathon, Full marathon, 50 mile and 75 mile challenges.

April – Swallow Events

They say the first signs of summer approaching are when the swallows come – swooping through the skies following a migration of thousands of miles. These high-flyers swoop with the most incredible ease, and chirrup away in wonder. Search the skies for them on your walk or run. Can’t tell the difference between a swift and a swallow? Look out for the extra long two thin feathered tails… standing for the two ‘ll’s in ‘swallow’. They’re different from the swift. Enjoy the Swallow events. Available: 5k, 10k, Half, Full marathon, 50m and 100m.

May – Blackbird Events

The blackbird maybe the most common bird in Britain, but they were originally from the wood and have conquered our urban lives.

Available: 5k, 10k, Half, Full marathon, 50m and 100m.

June – Kingfisher Events

What was the fast flash of blue by the river? That’s often all you’re lucky enough to witness before you register the wonder of the Kingfisher.

Dive into our Kingfisher events. Available: 5k, 10k, Half, Full marathon, 50m and 100m.

July – Skylark Events

August – Barn Owl Events

Available: 5k, 10k, Half, Full marathon, 50m and 100m.

September – Golden Eagle Events

October – Starling Events

Is there a sight more beautiful than the autumn murmurations of Starlings. This underrated bird gathers together to create a show so stunning.

Available: 5k, 10k, Half, Full marathon, 50m and 100m.

November – Canada Goose Events

Available: 5k, 10k, Half, Full marathon, 50m and 100m.

December – Robin Events
