A group of young people at Lochaber High School in Scotland holding banners that say Running Out of Time. One young man holds up a relay baton, and two young people in the foreground are holding bagpipes.

The Green Runners, GoodGym, Lochaber Environmental Group and Vegan Runners UK, on day one of the Running Out of Time climate relay. 

In this extended first episode of the Running Out of Time special series, we meet leaders of three of the climate relay’s lead partner organisations: David Starley, co-founder of The Green Runners, Ivo Gormley, founder and CEO of GoodGym and Damian Luscombe of Vegan Runners UK, and learn more about why they are supporting this extraordinary event. 

We also chat to team members from Lochaber Environmental Group and the Highlands & Islands Climate Hub, and to the relay support crew as they finish their first leg of the event!

Listen now, and subscribe to hear all the episodes from this special series as they land.

“…What ​I ​love ​about ​the ​relay, ​is ​it’s ​just ​such ​an ​easy ​way ​in, using ​sport ​as ​this ​platform ​for ​change.” – David Starley, The Green Runners

“I ​think ​it’s ​incredibly ​important ​to ​support ​the ​relay ​because ​anything ​we ​can ​do ​to ​raise ​awareness ​of ​the ​climate ​crisis, ​and ​also ​to ​do ​that ​through ​active ​travel, ​through ​running, ​cycling, ​walking, ​which ​are ​all ​fantastic, ​sustainable ​alternatives ​to ​fossil ​fuel ​powered ​transport, ​is ​a ​cause ​that ​we ​care ​passionately ​about.” – Ivo Gormley, GoodGym
