Environment And Exercise – The Tree-Athlon

The Tree-Athlon takes place in London (Battersea Park) and Leeds (Temple Newsam) in September. A bit different to an actual triathlon as the exercise is only one part of it. There’s a 5km run, an urban tree wish (!) and a fashion swap.

The tree wish is something that you put on your running bib to share with everyone else. And all participants are invited to reduce their carbon footprints by recycling garments and other articles they no longer need. If you bring a t-shirt or even a dress on the day that you don’t want anymore you’ll be able to swap it for something you will definitely wear or donate it to charity if you can’t find something else.

The one in London takes place on September 15 and Leeds on September 23 – registration is open now.
