WWF's 5K for Nature

Event Date: Tuesday, June 1, 2021 to Monday, June 7, 2021

Registration Fee: $35

Fundraising: Fundraising is optional, but encouraged

Location: Location of your choice!

For this event you won’t need to download an app, trek to a distant race location, or fight crowds for a spot on the starting line. This 5K is all about getting active and connecting with nature on your own terms.

Get outside anytime during the first week of June anywhere you’d like with the activity of your choice. Hike your favorite trail, walk your pup in a nearby park, or jog around your neighborhood and take a moment to appreciate the nature all around you. We're recommending a 5K (3.1 miles) as a suggested goal for you to reach while you're out in nature. No worries if you choose to do less or more, just remember that the important part is getting active out in nature.

This event has no leaderboards, no timers, no pressure. It’s all about you and nature. If you'd like to share your experience with us and other participants, please feel free to email us or tag us on social media @WWFPandaNation #5KforNature.

Nature is more than just a beautiful vista bustling with wildlife. We value nature for what it means to people—our livelihoods, cultures, and hearts. We love nature and everything it provides, and when you love something, you do everything you can to protect it.

But time is running out and nature needs you more than ever. Without our love, the natural world as we know it can—and will—disappear. So, it’s our choice to love it… or lose it. Join us for WWF’s 5K for Nature and fundraise to help protect the nature we all love.

Help us reach our fundraising goal of $100,000!

A virtual 5K is a 5K (3.1 miles) that can be run, walked, or hiked at your own convenience at any time and anywhere between June 1, 2021 and June 7, 2021.

This event has no leaderboards, no timers, and no pressure. It’s all about you and nature. If you’d like to share your experience with us and other participants, please feel free to email us or tag us on social media @WWFPandaNation and use #5KforNature.

You can complete your 5K for Nature anywhere you would like, including on a sidewalk, in a park, on a trail, at a track, etc. Please be sure to check updates from your local authorities about any current restrictions on activity before heading out for your 5K, including which areas are and are not open to the public.

Of course! You can run, walk, or hike a 5K as many times as you would like between June 1, 2021 and June 7, 2021.

Most phones have pedometers built into them. You can use the tracking method that comes with your phone or find an app that will track the distance for you. We are not requiring participants to track or send in their 5K times.
