We’re proud to be part of an incredible climate relay called Running Out of Time, an extraordinary 7,767km, non-stop relay from Glasgow, Scotland (COP26 host) to Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt (COP27 host) in the name of climate action. 

Running Out of Time will be the longest non-stop relay ever attempted with runners passing a baton containing a powerful climate change message from young people to the decision makers at COP27. Organised by The World Relay Ltd, the relay route is split into 732 stages that are around 10km each which runners can sign up for. The relay runs day and night for 38 days and travels to 18 countries.

The relay will begin with an opening ceremony in COP26 host city Glasgow on September 30th 2022 – where the message will be sealed in the baton. Carried by runners, cyclists and sailors, it will journey through Scotland, Wales, England, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Cyprus, Israel and Egypt – arriving to Sharm el-Sheikh on November 6th 2022 in time for COP27 which will take place from 6th-18th November 2022.

Along the route the baton will cross seas, mountain ranges, glaciers, and deserts, villages, towns and capital cities. It will visit hundreds of schools, at-risk locations and climate change projects to inspire and champion local climate action. Running Out of Time will also be fundraising for the Foundation for Environmental Education’s Global Forest Fund and Carbon Copy

Extraordinary change requires extraordinary effort – it’s everything Running Out of Time is about. We want everyone that’s passionate about climate change and our planet to sign up for a stage of the relay and help us deliver a powerful message with so much support that it is impossible to ignore” says Relay Director, runner and Guinness World Record holder Danny Bent. 

And he’s absolutely right!

Over the years Another World Adventures has helped a lot of people undertake extraordinary and unusual low-impact travel adventures – from crossing oceans under sail to hiking and biking to global environmental summits. Co-Founder Larissa Clark’s background campaigning for environmental justice means our happy place is where active travel meets sustainability and we’re working with the World Relay team to support the communications and some partner and water logistics to bring this event to life.

During the relay up to a million pupils from around the world will be brought together for a Schools Action Day on 3rd November – an exciting virtual programme that champions climate change solutions while empowering young people to create an environmentally conscious world through experiential, project-based learning.

People around the world who are unable to run a stage on the physical route won’t miss out. They’re invited to pass the baton during a Global Virtual Relay on November 5th 2022 which is expected to attract tens of thousands of runners in the name of climate action. 

Who can run? Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to sign-up to the relay. They will need to be able maintain an average pace of 6 minutes 15 seconds per kilometre /  10 minutes per mile for the duration of a stage. 

How much does it cost? The cost of entry to the relay is dependent on the country you are running in. The maximum cost will be £15 / €15 but it will be significantly less in many countries. A donation of at least 30% of every sign up will be made to the Running Out of Time charity partners, FEE and Carbon Copy. 

Running Out of Time is made possible thanks to the collaborative effort of a great many partners and supporters of which Another World Adventures is one
