Nature is the perfect training ground, and for many runners, there is no place they would rather be once they put their running shoes on – but nature is changing, and Run Wild 2021 aims to do something about that!
It may not be happening on your doorstep, but we have all seen photos of habitat loss and deforestation or read about the urgent need to help save endangered species and wildlife around the world, and it’s our shared responsibility to do something about it.
We need to protect our planet so that we can continue to enjoy the beauty of nature and keep running wild; not just for us, but for future generations to come.
At Polar, we are committed to improving sports performance and supporting healthier lifestyles, but we also want to help promote a more sustainable future for our planet.
We’re excited to join Run Wild 2021 and proud to be doing our part to support the global efforts to protect endangered species and wildlife all over the world.
Do you want to join us? No problem, keep reading to see how you can get involved.
WHAT IS RUN WILD 2021?
From September 24th until October 3rd, 2021, runners around the world will be taking part in the Run Wild challenge on the adidas Running app.
To help save the plants and animals that live in fragile ecosystems, adidas Runtastic is partnering with the United Nations Environment Programme and S.P.E.C.I.E.S. to call on runners everywhere to reconnect with nature and Run Wild.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED IN RUN WILD 2021?
Download the adidas Running app and join the Run Wild challenge.
Once you’ve joined the campaign, you can digitally Run Wild with Gaia the mountain lion.
Challenge yourself and see if you can outpace a mountain lion as you run (or walk) in the great outdoors, rediscovering exactly why it’s worth protecting.
