An RPL Toolkit

Runners Passionate about Environmental Stewardship

This toolkit provides specific steps you can take to start adding environmental stewardship to your running community as well as resources and links to help you during this process.

What does RPL mean by environmental stewardship? We mean climate action; sustainability practices; protecting public lands and expanding conservation efforts; and seeing to more equitable access to nature. You can use this toolkit to take action in any one or more of these areas.

To access the toolkit, please enter your email via the form below. To help create inclusive running communities, we will be sharing how the toolkit is being used by runners in our monthly newsletter!
