The Event

Join us in North America for part 3 of the Run The Continents 'Open' style series. You can join this event at any time and start accumulating* your distance towards this great reward. As the land area of North America is 2.47 million km squared, your target is to reach 247km to complete this event.

*Please note that only one accumulation style 'Open' event can be synced at one time. See FAQs for more information.

The Reward

Setting the scene in North America, we start with an igloo in the north of Canada. The Statue of Liberty is shown on the east of the US, Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills, South Dakota, and a black bear whose habitat is generally in the central and western states. We finish off with the famous sombrero in Mexico.

The Charity

We have chosen 10:10 Climate Action (now renamed 'Possible') for the Run the Continents series as finding renewable energy sources is a global issue, spanning all continents of the planet. This charity not only studies the changes in climate, but is also focused on providing renewable energy sources to schools around the UK, setting up solar paneled railway networks, tackling high flood risk areas and many more significant projects.
