Tackling climate change is a marathon we are all in together.
Have you ever finished a marathon? How about over a week’s time? At just 6 km each day – running or walking – just about anyone should be able to finish not just one marathon but one marathon every week in the month of October!
Excited? Find some friends, make some new friends, and tackle this challenge together.
Join us in spreading the word about this month-long virtual event this October to celebrate and support work around the world being done to address challenges posed by climate change.
In anticipation of next November’s COP26 in Glasgow, Dartington Trust is hosting a month-long Virtual Marathon in October 2020. The original 2020 dates for COP26 have been postponed until November 2021 due to the impact of COVID-19, but we want to keep the work of the many international partners in the spotlight and carry momentum forward with this campaign.
The challenge is now underway, but you can still join in – just sign up via the next available date in the ‘Book Now’ section below and we’ll ensure you receive our weekly email updates and emotional support throughout October.
Then share your intention to complete 26 miles of running or walking each week from Sunday 4 October to Saturday 31 October on your social media platform of choice, tagging in five friends you think might also be up for the challenge. You can join the growing Climate Marathon community in our Facebook group too.
