The Brooks Earth Week Challenge

The planet is our home, and with 150 million people running outside, it’s crucial that we play our part when it comes to taking care of it.

Hurray, we did it!

We're overwhelmed with how many runners participated. 161,000 runners laced up their shoes to help reach our goal to run 100 laps around the world. And you know what? We achieved it! An overwhelming 4 million kilometers were run during our Earth Week Challenge. That means we're going to plant 30,000 trees in collaboration with Earth Runs!

Find out more about how we're protecting the planet and people, and check out our new Running Responsibly report.

About Earth Runs

Here at Brooks, we love running – and so does Natasha from Earth Runs. Like all good ideas, Earth Runs came to her on a run one day. Instead of getting throwaway medals and t-shirts at the end of races, wouldn’t it be better to do something meaningful that supported the planet and make a difference with our runs?

So, she set up Earth Runs. It’s a simple concept: trees are planted. For every race held to date, they’ve planted over 5000 trees and hosted over 100 virtual races. And that’s making a big impact on our planet, as each tree will grow to support over 392 species and create enough oxygen to support two humans!
