We’re partnering with Trees Not Tees to make it easy for runners to plant trees!
Want to join us in reducing our environmental impact with trees?
During registration you can opt in to:
1) Replace your race shirt or medal with 1 tree
2) Replace BOTH your race shirt and medal with 2 trees
3) Keep your shirt and medal, but help us counter our carbon footprint by adding a tree at checkout
4) Opt to do both!
Why trees matter
Planting a tree is one of the best things you can do to fight climate change, as they remove carbon dioxide from the air as they grow. They also provide a habitat for a wide range of the most endangered and loved species, and create clean air for us to breathe. Your tree will be planted in the US to grow as part of a whole new forest full of native broadleaf tree species.
About Trees not Tees
