“Let’s save our home. Run to make a change. End plastic pollution.”

Every year, the Earth Day is observed by people around the world on April 22. Hundreds of countries have pledged to plant more trees and cut carbon emissions to save the earth. However, the road to a sustainable environment is a long and arduous one. And it wouldn’t be possible without the participation of each and every citizen of the earth.

Held in conjunction with Earth Day 2018, be a part of this global movement by making a small, yet powerful effort to reduce carbon emission through Earth Day Run Challenge 2018 presented by Royal Sporting House, a one-day event that challenges you to run as far as you can and minimise carbon emission at the same time.

How It Works:
1. Runners track their walk/run with GPS tracking app.
2. Multiple walks/runs are allowed throughout the day.
3. Runners take screenshots of the walk/run, then upload them to Spacebib within 5 days.
4. Top number of runners with the highest clocked mileage will win prizes from our sponsors. All participants will receive an e-certificate.

We encourage runners to bring their own bottles to minimise plastic waste.

You might be wondering, why would someone join an individual run rather than a mass running event? First of all, individual run actually generates less waste (including plastics) compared to a traditional running event. Imagine the amount of energy required to manufacture race bibs, timing chips, goodie bags, plastic packaging for the entitlements, and the finisher’s medals.

The Earth Day Run Challenge believes in minimising carbon footprints and ending plastic pollution, hence the traditional entitlements (shirt, medal, bib, etc) gives way to digital entitlements (e-cert with your details and accomplishments).

Moreover, with Earth Day Run Challenge, you don’t need to commute to the event place and literally reduce your carbon emission. And the best thing is, it’s flexible. You can run at any time within the specified period, anywhere in the world, with your own running buddies!

Earth Day is now a global event each year, and we believe that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries now take part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. It is a day of political action and civic participation. People march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads. Corporations and governments use it to make pledges and announce sustainability measures. Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.
