Run for the Health of The Planet

We’re not affiliated with the World Wildlife Fund, yet we’re all for the essential work they carry out preserving the planet. We therefore wanted to highlight that they’re challenging us all to raise our own health standards together with that of the planet in one of their countrywide fun runs.

First off don’t panic! Countrywide fun runs doesn’t mean you need to run the country! These aren’t marathons, they’re 5k Fun Runs and WWF have charity assured places in all of them for participants bringing a minimum of £50 sponsorship. That means they only need you to find someone prepared to challenge you a tenner for each kilometer. As well as having lots of fun, it’ll be a great way for you to test your health and if you commit yourself now, you could use the date as a reason to get into training.
