Run for Festival of Nature!

Festival of Nature is the UK’s biggest free celebration of the natural world – Each year, Festival of Nature showcases the natural world and the passion of numerous organisations working to conserve and promote the nature around us. In modern life, it’s ever easier not to see nature, not to have the chance to understand its meaning or value, and to be deprived of all it has to offer.  The Festival is a platform for people of all ages and backgrounds to see the places that we call home in a different way, and to better understand how nature impacts our lives, health and wellbeing.

Why not run for us? Your support helps offer this unique opportunity to discover the natural world, and forge meaningful connections that can build a positive future for nature.

Here’s how it works:

  • Fill out an application – let us know about you and why you would like to run for Festival of Nature!
  • Our successful runner will be supported by the Festival of Nature Team in fundraising a target of £2500 for Festival of Nature.
  • We’ll be there for you each step of the way – you will have our Team behind you with advice and updates, and we’ll kit you out with a Festival of Nature running top!
  • If that wasn’t enough, we’ll invite you to share your story and attend VIP events as part of Festival of Nature 2018!

If you would like to ask any questions, please contact the Festival of Nature Team at We’re happy to help at any stage of your application!

There is no entry charge for this running space, but to help our small charity support our runner all the way past the finish line, there will be a small administration fee of £25 (payable on acceptance of their place by the successful applicant)

Applicants must be over 18 years of age.

All applications will be considered on an individual basis.

We will be accepting applications for our Charity Bond space until 5pm, 31 October 2017.
