Join the world’s biggest climate change relay!

Registrations are now open for runners (and cyclists) to join the extraordinary Running Out of Time climate relay.

What is Running Out of Time?

Running Out of Time will be the longest non-stop relay ever attempted with runners passing a baton containing a powerful climate change message from young people to the decision makers at COP27.

Organised by The World Relay Ltd, the relay route is split into 732 stages of around 10km each. The relay runs day and night for 38 days and travels to 18 countries: from Glasgow (COP26 host) on 30 September to Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt (COP27 host) on 6 November.

It passes through Wales on 5-6 October.

We’re proud to supporting the relay, and will be working with schools, businesses, and volunteers to showcase inspiring climate action taking place across the country.

It’s an extraordinary challenge, requiring extraordinary effort, to achieve extraordinary change. And the good news is you can join in too.

Who can take part?

Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to sign-up to the relay. They will need to be able maintain an average pace of 6 minutes 15 seconds per kilometre / 10 minutes per mile for the duration of a stage.

How much does it cost?

The cost of entry to the relay is £15. A donation of at least 30% of every sign up will be made to the Running Out of Time charity partners, FEE (the Foundation for Environmental Education) and Carbon Copy.

Be a hero, carry the baton.
