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 most of times in races with social purpose. At distances between 5, 21 and 42 km (also in relay)
