2,436km - 210 Stages - One Mission

In 2024, by popular demand, we’re back! We'll run, walk, cycle, kayak, climb, wheel, swim and surf the baton across Britain for 29 days to supercharge awareness, celebrate great climate work and inspire action. A route that takes us within easy reach of 20 million people!

The Relay launches 6th June at Ben Nevis before undertaking an extraordinary 2,436km journey to Big Ben in Parliament Square, London on July 4th. Comprising 210 stages - and 80+ visits to climate & nature projects, sporting bodies & venues, schools, events and iconic locations - it's set to be the most spectacular Climate Relay yet!

Relay Highlights

The future of sport is net zero 

We're working with a host of sporting bodies including the FA, the MCC, England Athletics and British Triathlon to leverage the power of sport and highlight the positive climate action work being done in the sporting sector. ⚽ 🏏 🏊‍♀️

Celebrating climate campaigns, projects and events! 

The Relay is calling for real change and supports existing campaigns, including United For People, Climate & Nature, Show Your Stripes Day, Great Big Green Week, the Reading Climate Festival, Let’s Go Zero schools campaign and more!

By young people, for young people

From our launch at the ‘most scenic school in Scotland' -Lochaber High School - at the foot of Ben Nevis, to our epic Manchester and London ‘school run’ events. The Relay will visit 50 schools representing up to 25,000 students and deliver a climate assembly created by our partners.

Show Your Stripes Day

To celebrate Show Your Stripes Day the Relay makes its way to Lords and on to Reading for the finale of the Reading Climate Festival. 

Keeping that baton moving!

In addition to running, cycling, and walking, we will be snowboarding, wild swimming, climbing, paragliding and including a whole host of wild and wacky ways to move the baton!

The Relay Finale @ Parliament Square!

Join us at 8.00pm (20:00) on Thursday 4th July for an incredible group photo at precisely 20:30 in front of Big Ben to draw attention to the 2030 Net Zero targets and how we are Running Out of Time to achieve them. We need YOUR support to help make this moment as big as possible!
