Temperatures are rising and so are we.
Uprising is a tool — for catalyzing runner environmental stewardship — that maps runner activism engaging the climate crisis and ecological threats. It identifies trail running groups and events across the United States working on things such as: mitigating, and adapting to, climate change; environmental sustainability; protecting and restoring public lands; and equitable and safe access. The map includes groups and events that do two or more of the following:
Pursue increasingly environmentally sustainable operations and events
Promote climate and environmental literacy, and land acknowledgement
Fundraise for an environmental organization or an environmental cause
Volunteer for conservation work, e.g., restore habitats (trail work counts)
Advocate for climate action, environmental protection, or equitable access
