Uprising

Temperatures are rising and so are we.

Uprising is a tool — for catalyzing a new movement of runner environmentalists — that maps runner activism engaging the climate crisis and ecological threats. It identifies trail running groups and events across the United States working toward: mitigating, and adapting to, climate change; protecting and restoring the environment; and more ecological responsibility and sustainability. The map includes groups and events that do at least three of the following:

1
Pursue increasingly environmentally responsible operations and events
2
Promote climate and environmental literacy, and land acknowledgement
3
Fundraise for an environmental organization or an environmental cause
4
Volunteer for conservation work, e.g., restore habitats (trail work counts)
5
Advocate for climate action/justice, and more environmental protections
Uprising co-organizers: Clare Gallagher and Vic Thasiah
