Nature matters more than ever—and it’s in more danger than ever before. We value nature not just for its beauty and as an essential home for wildlife, but also for what it means to people—our livelihoods, cultures, and enjoyment. All of us who love and rely on nature have a responsibility to help protect it.
Join us for WWF’s 5K for Nature and fundraise to help protect the nature we all love.
This year there are two ways to participate! Choose between our app-free 5K anywhere, anytime option and a live virtual 5K on June 4th at 10am EST.
5K Anytime, Anywhere — June 1 to June 7
Our app-free option has no leaderboards, no timers, no pressure. Just get outside anytime during the first week of June, anywhere you’d like, with the activity of your choice:
- Hike your favorite trail;
- Walk, run, or roll in a nearby park;
- Check out a park or trail you’ve never visited before;
- Or simply jog around your neighborhood.
You can join in however you like, as long as you get outdoors and take a moment to appreciate the nature all around you. We're suggesting a 5K (3.1 miles) as a goal for you to reach, but the important part is just to get active out in nature—and to remind yourself why you love nature and why you’re committed to protecting it.
Register for the no-pressure, app-free 5K for Nature now.
Live Virtual 5K — June 4 at 10am EST
Do you love the feeling of competing outdoors with others? Then our live, virtual 5K is the option for you!
Join us virtually on Saturday, June 4th at 10am EST for a 5K streamed live through the Charge Running app. You'll receive a link to download the Charge Running app two weeks before the event. Then on June 4th, put on your headphones, step outside, and you'll be running with other nature lovers across the country.
Charge Running will update a race leaderboard in real time while you listen to live race announcements, a curated playlist, and special updates from WWF — you can even chat with other runners on the app.
Can't join us on the 4th? No problem! The race will be available on-demand on the app for a week following the event.
