A three part event for fit tree lovers, the Tree Athlon is a 5km run for everyone that wants to see more trees, not just in London, but in places all over the world where greenery is seriously lacking. Tree-Athletes can take part in the 5k, compete in a grass-track 100m attempt to regain the Guinness World Record for the largest ever barefoot race, and take a sapling home with them to plant.
Run for more trees
Having taken place in London for the past five years, the Tree Athlon London run is back again this year and sees sister runs in Leeds and Manchester later on in the autumn. This year the organisation hopes to raise enough money through both events to see trees planted in a variety of across the UK, including London. Internationally, the Tree Athlon runs will also help put fruit trees and indigenous plants in places like Peru, Addis Ababa and Nairobi.
Campaign for a greener London
Obviously everyone who takes part in the Tree Athlon run will be keen to raise as much money as possible for Trees for Cities. Everyone who takes part in the Tree Athlon London gets a Tree Athlon sapling to take home and plant in their own garden, to encourage wildlife and greenery wherever you live.
