Welcome to Montenegro!

Trasa kroz Crnu Goru počinje u planinskom i šumotivim predjelima, spušta se do Nikšića, drugog po veličini grada u zemlji. Zatim se dolinom rijeke Zete (park prirode) preko Danilograda stiže do glavnog grada Podgorice i na kraju u zoni Skadarskog jezera, najvećeg na Balkanu (Ramsar lista) prelazi u Albaniju.

The route through Montenegro starts in mountainous areas, descends to Nikšić, the second largest city in the country. 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?

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!

When is it?

The relay starts at Ben Nevis on Saturday 10th June and will finish at Big Ben on Tuesday 11th 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 6 minutes 15 seconds per kilometre / 10 minutes per mile 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.

We also have a Schools Action Day taking place on June 21st, which is open to schools around the UK.

Why are you doing this?

What do we do when we're running out of time? We run faster!

We are calling on everyone – from national government to local government; from individuals to communities; from schools to businesses – to work together to protect our world now and for future generations.

We aim to celebrate amazing climate action, and nature protection projects, run by community groups, charities, businesses and schools, from around the UK. Hopefully by championing all the great work already being done, we can play a part in securing more support and funding for these projects and others.
