Glaciers are melting, polar ice caps are thinning and coral reefs are dying. Climate change threatens the well being of all mankind. Today our consumption of renewable natural resources is 50% larger than nature’s capacity to regenerate. Every second, rainforests the size of a football field disappear Water problems affect half of humanity. It is quite clear now, that we will be handing to our children, a world which has been, in so many ways, made worse than when we inherited it.

THE ULTIMATE RACE AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE
Covering more than 300 kilometres through the wild and challenging terrains with mountain passes as high as 5320m the Snowman Race is an ultra-marathon, challenging the world’s fittest and most elite runners to help raise awareness on the impacts of Climate Change.
This race of a lifetime follows the trail of the famous Snowman Trek, which has been completed by fewer people than Everest. The audacious event appropriately turns up the heat, focused as it is on Climate Change.
