Trees not Tees & your medal

We are proud to be working with Trees Not Tees, giving you the option to plant a tree instead of receiving an official event medal.

If you would prefer to have a tree planted please select 'Trees Not Tees' and we will pay for a tree to be planted in place of providing a medal.

If you would like to plant a tree and still receive a medal, you can do so by making a small contribution to Trees Not Tees.
