Run/bike for your life

There is to be a 4,000km relay race to promote climate justice and a sustainable future, from the Arctic north of Sweden to the Paris negotiations, from 9 – 30 November, coordinated by Riksteatern (the Swedish National Touring Theatre).

Each leg is 4.2km (2.6 miles). Registration is open until 2 October: www.runforyourlife.nu

Alternatively, there are two bike rides from London to Paris for the COP21 climate negotiations.

TimeToCycle! are organising a five-day ride with lots of time for afternoon activities, leaving on 6 December, and arriving 10 December.

Registration opens in October: www.timetocycle.org

#ClimateKilometre are minimising time off work with a harder three-day ride (60–80 miles a day), leaving on 9 December, arriving on 11 December.

Either way, there will be a mass cycle ride in Paris itself as part of the D12 day of action (12 December).
