What would you do to help prevent extinction? Run? Walk? Kayak? This Earth Day, get active and help protect our world’s majestic species and wild places!

Join us on April 22 for The Race Against Extinction's 5K race in Boston, MA or Chicago, IL - can't make it in person? Participate in a virtual "Earth Day Outdoor Activity Challenge,” which encourages you to go outside and get active, wherever you are. Run, walk, bike, hike, paddle, blade, walk your dog—the options are endless!

For the past nine years, The Race Against Extinction has hosted 5K running and walking events to help raise funds and awareness to protect nature, donating all net race proceeds to conservation organizations such as WWF.

When you raise $75 or more by April 19, you'll receive complimentary race entry to either the Boston 5K, Chicago 5K or the virtual Earth Day challenge, official Panda Nation race gear, and an amazing sense of pride for protecting the future of nature.
