The new running and walking event was constructed because simply put by the organizers, climate change is a problem and we have to do something about it. The series was created so that individuals can do something meaningful for this global issue. There is also a virtual race which takes place anywhere, anytime in the first week of November. Cycling is also an option in the virtual event!
The race is an opportunity to crowd fund support for renewable energy projects, raise awareness, and build momentum for finding climate solutions. The Renewable Energy Fund will grow every time someone registers, and by the amount raised by sponsor collecting participants. If you register, you will get the chance to set a personal fundraising target. They will even set you up with your own crowd funding page where you can spread the word to your heart’s content across social media channels.
The events are designed to be family friendly, and for all athletic abilities. The events will include entertainment from theatre and costumes, to surprises that they have yet to release. The run or walk is 2 km or 10 km. Prizes will be awarded to the participants wearing the most creative costumes. They encourage dressing up like polar bears, orcas, elephants, bumble bees, dinosaurs, superheroes… but all costumes are welcome.
