Then through the valley of the river Zeta (nature park) and Danilovgrad reaches the capital Podgorica and finally in the area of Skadar Lake, the largest in the Balkans (Ramsar list), crosses into Albania.

What is Running Out of Time?

Running Out of Time is an annual climate relay that raises awareness, inspires action and celebrates great climate campaigns, projects and events across Britain.

The 2024 Relay launches 6th June at Ben Nevis before undertaking an extraordinary 2,436km journey through 50 cities and towns to Big Ben in Parliament Square, London on July 4th. Comprising 210 stages - and 80+ visits to climate & nature projects, sporting bodies & venues, schools, events and iconic locations - its set to be the most spectacular Climate Relay yet.

It features famous sporting venues; stunning natural sites, schools, universities, community projects, music, fashion and climate events. And a host of different and imaginative ways to move the baton which will be run, walked, cycled, swum, surfed, paddled, skied, para-glided and wake boarded along the way!

It should be fun, inspirational, and epic and we’d love you to join us! Please sign up now and help unite people, climate and nature!

When is it?

The relay starts at Lochaber High School, Fort William, on Thursday 6th June and will finish at Big Ben on Thursday 4th July.

Who can take part?

You must be over the age of 18 to sign-up to our relay and be able maintain an average pace of 7 minutes per kilometre for the duration of a stage.

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to run a stage, then please ask your parent/legal guardian to contact us at [email protected] and we will see if this can be accommodated.

Why are you doing this?

We want the Relay to champion climate action and nature, to celebrate the fantastic work that’s already being done, to raise awareness, change minds and inspire action, and to gently but firmly keep the pressure on our governments, our employers, our places of learning and ourselves to take collective action.

We want it to be an event that links and unites, that demonstrates the support that exists for change, and that provides our partners with a platform to help achieve their goals and objectives.

We do this because we believe in a future that not only avoids the most disastrous impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss - indescribably important though that is - but that also takes us to a better place. One with sustainable, affordable energy, with clean air and clean water, with food for all, and a natural world that can be enjoyed by future generations.

We know we are only a tiny part of a global community that shares this vision but relays are what we do and we are determined to play our part.
