European Week for Waste Reduction
September 21-29

European Week for Waste Reduction! Various activities about waste prevention will take place across Europe until 29 November! The annual motto for 2020 is “Invisible waste: waste that we can’t see – take a close look!”

We from Tarahumara Fans will participate in this initiative for the third time! As this year we cannot organize a run, we will use our social networks to promote two activities:
23-27 November: Testimonials Series
Each day a video with testimonials from one of our runners will answering the question: How do you as a runner reduce waste and contribute to the sustainability of the environment?
28 November: Information about our compostable t-shirts
Let’s talk about the T-shirt we use for running: produced from biodegradable fabric, with high durability and sustainable disposal.
Follow our activities on our social networks:

And we will not be alone! A number of different institutions will also promote various activities so senbilize of waste reduction in Frankfurt during this week! Here you will find the full programme:

Our 1st Social distance Run for the „Living Source“ Project

September 20th 2020

Run with us and plant trees.

Your place. Your distance.

On 20th of September Brazil celebrates the day of the tree. On this occasion, our project in Brazil will have a tree-planting campaign – in compliance with all current hygiene measures. In an act of solidarity we will run for this action! For every runner we will plant a tree in Brazil.

What: worldwide “SOCIAL DISTANCE RUN” to promote our “Living Spring” project and to link our international community even more closely.

When: 20th of September 2020

Where: From your place, on your favourite route and as long as you can!

Who: Runners/walkers all over the world – no matter where they are – run for the project “Living Source”. Whether individuals, sports clubs or running groups: everyone is welcome to participate in the run. (Corona rules apply)

Start: Register free of charge hier:

During the run:
All runners / walkers post a picture or video under the hashtag #runningfortheplanet2020 on:
Instagram: @tarahumarafans
Facebook group: Tarahumara Fans-Running for the planet

(you can also link us in your story or post)

It would be especially nice if the picture or video shows a symbol of the city or country where you are running. This could be the Eiffel Tower, the Sugar Loaf Mountain, a typical national route catering or simply a written sheet with the message #runningfortheplanet2020 + name of the city (e.g. Paris, Rio…). There are no limits to your creativity!

Finish: All runners will receive a #runningfortheplanet2020 finisher event photo.

  • 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)
