Onetrack1000

BLUE has partnered with One Track Running Club to launch Onetrack1000 – a run to save our ocean.

Onetrack1000

Runners of all abilities are able to pick their distance and circle the track to clock up either a 5k, a 10k or a half marathon while a DJ spurs them on with uplifting tunes.

On 1 September 2019, over 100 participated in the event at Battersea Park including BLUE Trustee, Craig Davies and six members of the BLUE Team who between them ran a total of 55km. The runners were greeted and cheered on by Olympic legend, Jamie Baulch.

BLUE’s CEO Clare Brook sent the runners off with a speech explaining that whenever she runs, she thinks she’s going to run out of breath, and that’s exactly what’s happening in the ocean; agricultural run-off, sewage and other pollutants are starving the ocean of oxygen. The event raised funds for BLUE’s project in North Devon which aims to support traditional fishing methods, allowing habitats to thrive and the sea to be restored to health.

Onetrack1000 2020 will take place on Sunday 14 June 2020 and we’re looking forward to an even bigger event.
