The Sunchaser Challenge Goes CarbonFree®
Thursday, 14 January 2010
The nation’s premier race to support endangered species has gone CarbonFree®. Working with Wild Ones Promotions, Carbonfund.org has calculated the carbon footprint of all 4 North American races, including travel to the locations, hotel stays at the races and any equipment used at the races themselves. To make these races CarbonFree® Wild Ones Promotions is donating $1 for every competitor. This donation will support Carbonfund.org’s reforestation projects. The Sunchaser Challenge begins at sunrise on May 22, 2010. Thousands of competitors in four different locations in the United States will run, mountain bike, kayak, cycle, and navigate their way to rescue 50 different animals before sunset. At checkpoints throughout the race, participants will need to collect representations of different endangered animals, and the solo or team entrant who collects the most wins a prize. By raising awareness of endangered species and donating money to wildlife charities, the Sunchaser Challenge is at the forefront of protection efforts in the United States. Truly fulfilling its mission to protect the environment, the Sunchaser Challenge has made a commitment to make sure it is as sustainable as possible. Registrations are being completed online, recycling stations will be set up throughout the race locations, participants are encouraged to bring old running shoes to recycle at the race, organic food and drinks are being made available at the race, and serving ware that will be used are biodegradable and recyclable. Registration is filling up quickly for the events located in Saranac Lake, NY; Lake Geneva, WI; Lake Havasu, AZ; and North Lake Tahoe, CA. Wherever you are in the country, there’s a race in your time zone. Give the race a try – raise some money for endangered species and see if you can be this year’s top scorer!
