    What do you get if you mash-up an Attenborough nature documentary and the Olympics?... Running Out of Time! We're bringing together multiple sports, incredible climate action projects, stunning natural landscapes, mixing them all together and throwing YOU into the heart of it! Running Out of Time is a 2,661km relay from Ben Nevis to Big Ben. There are a total of 366 stages, with stages ranging from 2-30km long. The relay runs from sunrise to sunset for 32 days and travels to 30 counties. Our goal is for the relay baton to be passed from person-to-person and arrive in London. Most stages will be run and a small number will be cycled. We will also be kayaking, canoeing, paragliding, skiing, mountain biking, walking, wheeling and more!
