RUN. LOVE. PROTECT. RESTORE.

PLANET, THANKS FOR SAVING US. LET’S GIVE BACK TO THE PLACES WE RUN WILD. 

Runners for Public Lands is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that mobilizes runner participation in conservation work and environmental causes. RPL is based in Ventura, California.

Runners and environmentalists are natural allies. Both know that the quality of our lives depends on the quality of the places we live, work, and play. As the largest recreational group in the United States, runners are also powerful allies. We believe environmental issues (such as clean air, water, and energy, and carbon emissions, global warming, and habitat and biodiversity loss) call runners to join the conversation and take action for the sake of people and planet.

 

EDUCATION

We promote runner environmental literacy by working with environmental organizations and corporate partners to provide nature-based, educational opportunities for runners of all ages and abilities.

CONNECTION

We coordinate with local and broader (someday global!) conservation efforts to increase runner understanding of and involvement in such work, including climate-related advocacy.

REVOLUTION

We reach out to environmentally-conscious runners across the planet to build a national network and global movement of runners protecting and restoring the environment.
