THE ROTTEN RACES

Celebrate that rotten run! Had a bad run? A race that stinks? Turn that rotten run into something awesome. We’re celebrating autumn by turning your rotten miles into real trees. Just as the leaves rot and feed future growth, now those rubbish days can do something remarkable. Sign up to a 5k, 10k, half or full marathon to grow something great.

LUCKY I CAN

Do 5k because you’re lucky you can. We’ll plant 2 trees for you plus donate £3 to Save the Children. Your trees will grow to help offset carbon, protect natural habitats, and the donation will help children in disaster areas.

Race Against Extinction Races

Make your miles go further. Race any of our Race Against Extinction races and we’ll plant trees to help protect and support the natural habitat of some of the most endangered species on our planet. It doesn’t matter how fast you run, but time is running out for these animals if we don’t act fast.

R.A.E. TIGER

The number of tigers worldwide is estimated to have fallen to just 3,900. Their natural habitats have been destroyed and had significant effects on numbers. Choose to run, walk, roll or cycle our Race Against Extinction Tiger races, and you’ll plant trees with your miles in India, helping to fight deforestation and provide much needed safe habitats for them to breed.

R.A.E. ELEPHANT

Asian elephants have been considered endangered since 1986, their population decreasing by over 50% in the last 75 years due to poaching, fragmentation and deforestation. Choose to run, walk, roll or cycle our Race Against Extinction Elephant races, and you’ll plant trees with your miles in Indonesia, helping to fight deforestation and support local communities in protecting these beautiful animals.

R.A.E. GORILLA

Only 1063 mountain gorillas are thought to exist in the wild today, with hard work and conservation efforts, this number is rising slowly. Illegal poaching, habitat deforestation and human diseases are still a major threat to their future. Choose to run, walk, roll or cycle our Race Against Extinction Gorilla races, and you’ll plant trees with your miles in Uganda, helping to increase forestation and grow safer habitats for them to survive.

R.A.E. TURTLE

Marine Turtle numbers are under threat from so many factors, fishing gear, plastic pollution, disrupted nesting sites plus rising sea levels caused by deforestation. Choose to run, walk, roll or cycle our Race Against Extinction Turtle races, and you’ll plant trees with your miles in Costa Rica, one of the nesting sites for the endangered Leatherback Turtles. Fight the effects of deforestation and help save our marine turtles.

R.A.E. ORANGUTAN

Orangutans have been considered critically endangered since 2000 with their numbers having halved in the last century due to logging, forest fires and the removal of tropical forests for palm oil. Choose to run, walk, roll or cycle our Race Against Extinction Orangutan races, and you’ll plant trees with your miles in Indonesia, helping to fight deforestation and restore the natural ecosystems for Sumatran Orangutans.

R.A.E. RHINO

Fewer than 27,000 rhinos remain in the wild today, a dramatic drop from 500,000 in the 20th century. The western black rhino and northern white rhinos have already become extinct. Persistent poaching and habitat loss over many decades threaten these beautiful creatures. Choose to run, walk, roll or cycle our Race Against Extinction Rhino races, and you’ll plant trees with your miles in Indonesia, helping to fight deforestation and grow safer habitats for them to survive.

Asian Corner

The Americas Corner
