    • The Running Out of Time Relay event- Join #TeamMDX on 8th October

      The Running Out of Time Relay event- Join #TeamMDX on 8th October

      Join the Middlesex University team in running/ jogging for Climate Action, on Saturday 8th October 2022 in London.

      The Running Out of Time relay is an initiative which is aiming to highlight the problem of global warming/ climate change, through the medium of a running/ cycling (& sailing) relay between Glasgow, Scotland – the host of last year’s delayed Climate conference (COP26) and this year’s conference (COP27) which is taking place in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt.

      Middlesex University is committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and participation in this relay, is a way of demonstrating our support for Climate Action.  This relay event is an opportunity to show support for tackling the problem, in a practical way. I’m sure the atmosphere of the relay event will be really positive, collaborative and enjoyable.

      There are a number of relay legs in London. We have specifically chosen Leg 160 a Stage which is only 4km long to support, but feel free to enter any of the legs which appeal to you.

      This starts at Stepney City Farm at 10.40am. To go directly to the registration page for this leg, click the link below.

      • The event needs at least one participant for each leg, but multiple participants can sign up for each leg, so groups of students / staff / friends can all do the same leg if they’re interested.
      • Route: Stepney City Farm, London to The Scoop, London Saturday 8th October
      • There is a limit of 25 runners per running stage.
      • All participants should be over 18 unless accompanied by a responsible adult
      • There is an entry Cost, and a significant portion of which goes to charities working on Climate Action.
