We have some big news about this year’s Great Climate Race. We are trying something new.
Mari and I have been gathering feedback over our first two years.
We have been dreaming big about how we can have the most impact as quickly as possible and that lead us to make some changes…
For starters we are eliminating our registration fee! That’s right the race is now free to enter.
This is possible because we are focusing on expanding our International Virtual Race and our Vancouver event will look very different this year. We will soon launch our new tool kit to facilitate the Great Climate Race in Vancouver and Internationally.
To compete in the 10k you will be able to run or walk wherever you want with a group or alone on the last weekend of October Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th.
There will be meet up runs happening in cities around the globe including a race on the seawall in Stanley Park in Vancouver like past years. But now Vanouver participants will be competing (and cooperating) with people from around the world!
To preserve the tradition of our event from the last two years we are organizing a 10k meet up on Sunday morning Oct 29th.
We are currently looking for people to be involved in our race committee to help organize the Sunday morning sewall run. Please join our race committee Facebook page to contribute your thoughts and ideas.
If you want to volunteer and get more involved day to day send me a reply and we can talk details. Great way to get organizing experience and volunteer hours for students. Please pass this on to anyone you think would be interested.
Registration will open at the beginning of October. For now we just wanted to give you an update on what was up.
You will be able to use our tool kit to facilitate fundraising per kilometer of running or walking from whenever you registered until race day.
PRO TIP: There will be prizes that take into consideration your total km’s and fundraising in October not just on race day weekend.
SURVEY: If you have not yet filled out our survey we are still looking for more feedback to optimize the race experience.
We will be sending out more information soon about the race and how the tool kit will work but we wanted to fill you in on the big news.
That’s it for now from me, thanks for everything.
Co-Founder, The Great Climate Race.
P.S. – Please consider getting involved in the Race Committee for the Vancouver event in Stanley Park.
You can use the race committee to kickstart the planning of your own meet up somewhere else for that weekend if you want as well.
Get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
