How to get involved in adidas’ Run For The Ocean here in Dubai

Ready to get fit and fight for a good cause at the same time? Join adidas’ global campaign and you can burn calories while saving the ocean.

From Saturday June 8 until Sunday June 16, the sportswear company is marking World Oceans Day with a worldwide run that anyone can take part in.

The campaign this year will unite more runners in more locations than ever before to lace up and Run For The Oceans in order to reach this year’s increased goal of $1.5m.

For every kilometer run, adidas will contribute $1 to the Parley Ocean School (capped at $1.5 million). Dust off those trainers and get ready to run.

To join the movement and, well, run for the oceans between June 8 and 16, runners worldwide can sign up and track their runs by joining the Run For The Oceans challenge via the Runtastic (Joyrun) app.

In 2018, adidas created a global movement with Run For The Oceans, uniting nearly one million runners from around the world and raising $1 million for long-term partner Parley for the Oceans.

The partnership saw five million pairs of shoes created using recycled ocean plastic in 2018 alone.

In 2019, adidas is upping the pace of change. The introduction of the 2019 Parley range will see the company produce a landmark 11 million pairs of shoes using upcycled marine plastic waste.
