Help clean up our oceans by participating in this sustainable running event

0

adidas invites runners of all abilities to smash the miles to help end plastic waste in our oceans.

Coming down the first weekend in June, runners of all skill levels will set foot on the pavement for the Run For The Oceans and for every 10 minutes of running, adidas will clean the equivalent of one plastic bottle from our beaches and islands.

The race will be guided by adidas ambassadors around the race course before being treated to relaxing tunes, complimentary coffee and healthy treats.

And because no fun run is complete without fresh produce, you’ll also receive a free adidas Run For the Oceans t-shirt.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just starting out, this sustainable running event aims to bring like-minded people together to smash a few miles and save our oceans.

To help make a difference, register for the race event through the adidas but hurry, places are limited to 200.

Can’t make it to the event? You can still chase away that post-run endorphin rush while doing some good for the planet by downloading the adidas app to track your runs. The same rules apply, for every 10 minutes of tracking, adidas will clean up a piece of plastic.
