For those who want to run:

Run For Your life is an open event and anyone can take part. The baton will always be in the hand of a runner, in forward motion, until it reaches the hand of the next runner. Each applicant should indicate the stretch or part of the country they would like to run as well as their reason for joining the run.

Even if you are not running you are welcome as audience to support the runners or as arranger of a local event. Note: We are using the word run in a symbolic way and persons who need to walk or use a wheelchair are not prevented from participating. The idea is simply to move forward as fast as you can, considering your own personal circumstances or abilities.

Engage in other ways

It will be possible to participate in Run For You Life in ways other then those described above. Please write to us and we will contact you soon with more information.

For those who want to arrange:

We expect that Run For Your Life will attract the attention of a large group of individuals, groups and organizations wishing to engage themselves in climate issues, now and in months to come.

Our vision is that exciting, fun and essential activities will take place all along the route we will take. As a local arranger, you will be free to arrange activities according to your particular strengths, needs, abilities and the desires expressed in the community where you live.

We will provide a web-based toolbox full of digital resources to facilitate your local activities and help you create a program in line with the project’s ideals and principles and which will also help you gain visibility and strengthen your local initiative.

Have a look at this map and see where the route passes close to you.

Do you want to join?

There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.

– Marshall McLuhan

We need you! Join our cause by telling your story or hosting a local event when the race passes by your hometown, or maybe both. We are looking for thousand stories of participants joining the relay race. Everyone’s story and perspective is interesting, but we have only a limited amount of spots. So we are going to prioritize people who don’t usually get space and we will have to select stories depending on the total spectra of voices. We are trying to get as broad and diverse perspectives as possible. Even if your story does not become one of the thousand, you are very welcome to run with us and tag along. We believe that taking few minutes to think about why it’s important to take action it’s a useful exercise for everyone. We hope you want to try it!

To participate in Run for your life you have to read and accept our core values.

Already on board? Whether you participate by running or organizing a local event, here is a toolkit to help spread the word.

Why would you run?*Run for your life is an action of fear of the climate disaster which is rushing against us and in some cases is already here, right in front of us. Run for your life is an invitation to show or even embody your commitment to take action.
Part of your participation in the relay race is sharing your own story of why you run against time. You might have several reasons of why you choose to be part of this relay. Your story and your reason/s are as much important as your body running towards Paris.
If you'd like to, please write a short text of about 500-1500 signs where you try to describe the urgency of your running in a personal way. Take a moment and think closely on climate change: Do you remember a specific moment when you realized that humanity is facing a climate disaster? What do you love and hope to not lose to climate chaos?
Where would you run?We invite people to run close to where they live or close to a place that is important for them.
Along the way the relay passes by these bigger cities:

How long could you run?*
We are looking for 1000 runners over a total length of about 4200 km, some run long distances, others shorter. We invite you to run or walk if your body’s conditions allow it. You can of course use a wheelchair if you need it, just keep in mind that you have to move as fast as possible.
How long time would it take for you to run that distance?
What happens now?You will receive a confirmation that we received your notification. Everyone's story and perspective is interesting, but we only have a limited amount of distances. We will therefore give priority to the total spectrum of voices get as large as possible. The selection process will be done in September-October. You will be notified if your text is chosen in the middle of October.
