Running out of Time Co-Founder Jamie Hay said:

“I’m really looking forward to bringing the Running Out of Time Relay to my home county. The relay has travelled over 1700km so far on it’s 2661km journey from Ben Nevis to Big Ben and in Herefordshire we have so many fantastic climate action projects taking place across. We hope to use this moment in the relay to help celebrate the work already being done. Shine a light on it and hopefully inspire others to follow suit. Keeping the pressure on our governments, our employers, our places of learning and ourselves to take collective action to look after our planet.

“The relay will use the power of sport to literally connect the many incredible projects taking place with an unbroken chain of participants.”

The relay started on June 10th and ‘runs’ until July 11th, thousands of runners, walkers, wheelers and cyclists will relay the baton 2,661km from Ben Nevis to Big Ben; inspiring the nation to take collective action NOW to reach net zero!
