Tracking your distance

Hit your fundraising goal and then Run to Restore Nature between May 7-15 from wherever you are. You can complete your course all at once, compete for your personal best time or work towards your total distance a bit at a time.

Sync your app or log your distance manually, and see your course come to life on your personal fundraising page.

Important note

All logged training activities will be removed before May 7 to ensure fairness over the race period of May 7-15. 

Training Tips

Every year, people of all ages and fitness levels participate in athletic events to support the causes that matter to them.

Whether you’re going for a record time or your own personal best, we’ll help you stay the course and support your efforts to cross the finish line.

Get in a routine

Try to train at least three times per week. However, don’t train if you’re unwell, as this might increase the time you’ll take to recover.

Train for time, not speed

Especially if you are taking on a longer course, your training program should be designed to gradually increase the distance you can run rather than how fast. Avoid drastic increases in your training time. If you train for a total of ten to 15 minutes three or four times in one week, don’t increase this by more than 10 minutes the following week.

Take it outside

Mix up your training! The gym or exercise equipment at home are great training options, especially on gloomier days, but don’t neglect the great outdoors.

Find your pack

Recruit a like-minded friend or friends to train with. This will be a fun way to hold yourselves accountable and stay on schedule. Plus, don’t forget about the post run celebrations you can enjoy together.
