European Week for Waste Reduction

September 21-29

 The annual motto for 2020: “Invisible waste: waste that we can’t see – take a close look!”

Activities to sensibilize for waste reduction! We from Tarahumara Fans e. V. participated for the third time! Since we could not organize a run this year, we posted a testimonial with a video message from one of our runners every day on our social media channels. The topics were „How can you as a runner reduce waste and contribute to sustainability and environmental protection” and also the production and biodegradability of our running shirts.
You can find the activities on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

How it works

  • The more runners we have, the more projects we can support. Come  run with us
  • We have our own race, the “Running for the Planet” in the summer in Frankfurt – Probably the most sustainable race in the world. Here we will run specifically to support our goals.
  • The Frankfurt Marathon is also specific to our projects, so the registration is through us
  • We run in Germany, Brazil and Mexico, most of times in races with social purpose. At distances between 5, 21 and 42 km (also in relay)
