Are you a runner? Do you fancy taking part in a 10K event that will help raise funds for the vital work we do at Trees4Life Campaign?
Whether you’re an amateur or an expert, we’re looking for eco-friendly runners to join Team Trees4Life in two events this summer. First up is the British 10k on July 12. This event takes place in the heart of London, with the route passing many of the city’s historical landmarks, including St. James’s Palace, Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Big Ben and Downing Street.
This year’s British 10K is extra special as a new route has been planned to coincide with the event’s 15th anniversary. We have 12 places available on our team and we’d love you to be involved.
Registration costs £25 and we would like all our runners to commit to raising £250, which will go towards planting olive, almond, date, lemon and other fruit trees in Palestine, Bangladesh and Mexico. Deadline to register is 30th June so sign up today.
All Trees4Life runners in the British 10K will be kitted out with a running vest and a fundraising pack after registering. Find out more about how to get involved here.
We’re also looking for runners to join us in the Great Newham London Run on July 19. This event takes place in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, giving you the unique opportunity to have your own Olympic moment and cross the same finish line as the likes of Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis did during the 2012 Olympic Games.
The route also takes in sights including the iconic Arcelor Mittal Orbit, London Aquatics Centre, Copper Box Arena and Lee Valley VeloPark. Registration costs £32 and we’re asking our runners to raise a minimum of £250 to support our work. Everyone on Team Trees4Life will get a t-shirt, fundraising pack and two spectator passes so you can bring along your loved ones for some moral support. We only have five guaranteed places available for this event – so get in touch to register your interest quickly!
All money raised will help us plant fruit trees in some of the world’s poorest countries. Trees are a vital tool for fighting climate change, as well as providing food, shelter, and helping balance the planet’s eco-system.
