Running Out of Time World Relay


Running Out of Time World Relay


Running Out of Time is a 7,767km non-stop relay from Glasgow, Scotland (Host of COP26) to Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt (Host of COP27). There are a total of 732 stages, with each stage being around 10km long. The relay runs day and night for 38 days and travels to 18 countries. Within the relay baton is a climate change message from young people to the decision makers at  COP27.

From the opening ceremony in the COP26 host city, Glasgow, on September 30th, 2022—where the message will be sealed within the baton—the relay covering 7200 km will journey through 18 countries—UK (Scotland, Wales, England), France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Egypt—arriving in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt on November 6th, 2022 in time for COP27 which will take place from November 7th–18th, 2022.

Running Out of Time includes runners, cyclists, and sailors working together to pass a baton hand-to-hand. It contains a powerful climate message crisscrossing seas, mountain ranges, glaciers, and deserts and visiting schools, at-risk locations, and climate change projects meeting scientists, engineers, and designers at the forefront of the green revolution to better understand what is happening to our planet and to inspire local climate action.
