Join the Movement

Runners for Public Lands (RPL) builds communities that combine running with learning about, protecting, and restoring the environment. RPL is based in Ventura, California.

We care about the lands and streets we run, air we breathe, water we drink, and people we know; we’re natural allies of community environmental work. And, given that runners are the largest outdoor recreational group in the United States, we have power. Urgent and inseparable environmental and social issues call us to act for the sake of people and planet.

Building community

We build communities that combine running with learning about environmental issues, especially those negatively impacting public health, and promote runner environmentalism.

Volunteering locally

We mobilize runners to volunteer for local environmental work, for example, public land acquisition and stewardship; environmental justice and the restoration of polluted and damaged ecosystems and communities; and climate-related advocacy.

Spreading the word

We seek to inspire all runners to engage local and global environmental issues and their social impacts.
