Calling all eco-warriors, this is the running event for you!
Hey Londoners, would you like to see more green in the capital? Here's your chance to make a positive change by taking part in Trees for Cities' 5K Tree-athlon on September 17th in Battersea Park.
This fun run is all about raising money to plant trees throughout parts of the city that need them the most, making London not only greener, but healthier too. The race is great for everyone aged 12 and up, from beginners to experts, barefoot runners, even wheelchair users!
In addition to running, participants will also have the chance to meet Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins and take home a sapling to plant in their own garden.
And do you fancy being part of a world record event? Then don't miss the 100m barefoot run, an attempt to smash the current Guinness World Record. And to keep your energy flowing, live music and street art will be on hand all day.
Runners also have the chance to win £150 worth of sports gear from Sports Direct, just by signing up (but hurry, you have to sign up before 29 July to qualify!).
Registration is £22, and each participant is asked to raise another £25 to fund the planting of trees around the city. To take part and for expert training advice, go to www.treesforcities.org Registration closes mid-Septemeber.
