Running Out of Time
Join the world's biggest climate change relay!
The impact of climate change on our planet will be felt most by our youth and future generations. Their collective voice needs to be heard. Together, we aim to deliver their message, held within the relay baton, with so much support that it is impossible to ignore!
From the opening ceremony in COP26 host city Glasgow on September 30th 2022 – where the message will be sealed in the baton - the relay will journey through 18 countries - UK (Scotland, Wales, England), France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Egypt - arriving to Sharm el-Sheikh on November 6th 2022 in time for COP27 which will take place from 7th-18th November 2022.
7,200km - 685 stages - one mission!
Running Out of Time will be the longest non-stop relay ever attempted with runners, cyclists and sailors working together to pass a baton hand-to-hand containing a powerful climate message from young people to the decision makers at COP27.
Along the extraordinary route, the baton will cross seas, mountain ranges, glaciers, and deserts and visit schools, at-risk locations and climate change projects meeting scientists, engineers and designers at the forefront of the green revolution to better understand what is happening to our planet and to inspire local climate action.
Once in Egypt up to a million pupils from around the world will be brought together on November 3rd for a Global Schools Day!
Proceeds raised from the collaborative initiative will support charities Carbon Copy and the Foundation for Environmental Education.
