Run for Climate

Run for Climate

Do you want to run the Cambridge Half Marathon? Make your miles matter and do it for the climate! We have 5 places available, so if you’re interested in running for us, let us know.

If you’re one of these 5 runners, you’ll receive:

  • your spot for free
  • an iron on transfer so you can upcycle one of your running tops to show your support
  • support in the lead up and with any fundraising you choose to do.

Not sure what target to put on your fundraising efforts for this? We suggest to try and beat £250.

If you don’t manage to get one of our designated places, don’t worry, you can still race for us! Get in touch with us and we’ll send you the iron on transfer for you to upcycle a top with and help you on your journey.

Why run for climate and for Cambridge Carbon Footprint?

The latest IPCC report told us we must act now to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions to avoid 1.5+ degrees of warming and the likelihood of catastrophic climate change.

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) estimates that the average UK household will need to reduce emissions by 87% in the next 30 years, requiring a reduction in energy use, changes to the way we travel, what we eat, how much we buy and how we dispose of things. This is where we come in. Cambridge Carbon Footprint provides the practical tools and advice people need to make a difference.

Last year, we ran 68 events, engaging nearly 7,000 people through a variety of events and activities. You can find out more about our events and approach in our 2018 Annual Report. None of this would be possible without the amazing support of our donors and fundraisers. Run for climate and help us continue to make a difference and contribute towards a net zero carbon Cambridge.
