HOW IT WORKS
TURN YOUR MILES INTO TREES!
EarthRuns works on a simple concept – you choose a distance to race (you can run or walk, or do both!). You race it anywhere you like and at anytime before the cut off date – you just need to record it to show you’ve done it. You submit your evidence to us and we plant the trees you’ve earned!
Each race has a specific number of trees that can be earned, the more miles you run, the more trees that are planted. That doesn’t mean you have to be an ultra-runner to make a difference. A 5k distance still plants two trees and two trees can make a big difference: each tree will grow to support over 392 species and create enough oxygen to support two human beings! Every race really does count.
What proof do you accept?
We accept screenshots from any mileage recording device or app such as Fitbit, Garmin, Strava etc, we can also accept screenshots of race results such as Park Run or another official organised race.
Submitting your results
Log into your account using your username and password and click on the link for the race you have completed. Click ‘upload results’ and submit your photo.
Once we’ve reviewed your race, we’ll publish the results, add the trees to your ongoing account and, if you’ve requested a medal, we’ll send it in the post!
Where can I race?
Anywhere, literally, anywhere – you can tag an Earth Run to any organised race you’re already doing, you can add it to your weekly mileage, you can do it on a trail or even on a treadmill. Just remember to record it!
From time to time we’ll organise specific runs for just trail runners or just treadmill runners and even the odd speed walker challenge. If you wish to be notified – sign up to our newsletter here.
EVERY RACE PLANTS TREES!
THE WORLD NEEDS TREES RIGHT NOW
Our climate is in crisis, planting more trees and fighting deforestation is one part of the solution. You maybe running a virtual race but you're contributing to an actual solution. You run the miles and we partner with organisations worldwide to plant the trees. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s fun.
