Ultra Clean Marathon: the challenge that helps nature!
Next 5th June, World Environment Day, you have a date with nature!
What is the Ultra Clean Marathon?
“The Ultra Clean Marathon (UCM) is a sporting and environmental challenge that aims to raise environmental awareness among athletes and to appeal to their capacity for action for nature. That is why the UCM is a race where people run, collect abandoned waste in natural spaces (plogging), learn about environmental problems at each refreshment point and donate the registration fee to nature conservation and environmental projects”.
The Nature Conservation Network (XCN) is organising this sporting and environmental challenge so that participants can donate their registration fee to one of the organisations working on conservation projects in our territory. SUBMON is a member of the XCN and currently forms part of the Management Board.
For this third edition of the Ultra Clean Marathon, which will consist of running 60 km in plogging mode, i.e. removing abandoned waste in natural spaces, SUBMON encourages you to participate and to donate to marine conservation projects.
How to participate in the Ultra Clean Marathon for SUBMON?
- Put together a team of between 2 and 12 people with friends, family members and work colleagues who love nature and sport and who want to contribute to the conservation of the natural environment, and in particular our seas, by collecting any litter we find during the race.
- The route is organised in 10 km sections and in pairs (minimum). We leave from Terrassa to reach the Moll de la Marina in Barcelona: between all of us, we will have completed the total distance of 60 km!
- By participating and registering your team in the Ultra Clean Marathon and choosing SUBMON as your solidarity cause, you will be contributing to the conservation of the species and habitats that live in our sea. You can be creative when it comes to collecting your donation!
- You have until the 6th of May to register your team and donate, but you can finish registering your team runners until the 22nd of May.
…all the litter we collect during the race will not end up in the sea!
On the 28th of April we will be presenting the entity and explaining the dynamics of the Ultra Clean Marathon in the last meeting of the UCM Community via online.
