Join the Planet Pledge party!

We’re encouraging our epic Batonbearers to take a few pledges to help make the relay more sustainable. During the 29-day relay why not take on challenges such as eating vegan for a month, volunteering at a local climate project, or attending a climate or nature event in your area as part of the Great Big Green Week.

Join in on the action and choose your pledges when registering for your relay stage. 🙌

Pledge 1

Get there greener - travel low carbon to my relay stage

Pledge to use public transport, arrive on foot or by bicycle for travelling to and from your relay stage. If you need to travel by car, bring friends along to share the ride. Top tip: Plan your stages around train stations or bus stops! Let's keep the relay fossil free!

I pledge to try a plant-based diet for one month.

A plant-based diet has a significantly lower environmental impact than other diets. Make a difference and pledge to try going vegan for one month via one of these two routes:

1. Take the Running on Plants 30-Day Challenge and receive nutrition tips, recipes and training plans to see how you can improve your fitness. Try Running on Plants 30-Day Challenge.

2. Veganuary is not just for January: You can sign up at any time and you'll receive resources including their celebrity cookbook, one-pot meal plan, nutritional advice and more. Try Veganuary.
