Running the Ammergau Alps for air
On 31 July, trail runners across Europe will be running for 3, 6, 12, or 24 hours and aiming for a maximum vertical gain.
Air pollution is the world’s largest environmental health threat. Poorer areas and those that house some racial and ethnic groups face higher levels of traffic density and are disproportionally harmed by this invisible killer. Children who live or go to school near roads with heavy-duty vehicle traffic face twice the risk of respiratory problems as those living near less congested streets. But it doesn’t need to be this way. If we cut air pollution we could prevent 50,000 deaths in Europe, every year. Breathing clean air should be a basic human right. That is why I am taking part in this endurance challenge. Please help me to raise funds for 18 environmental groups fighting for clean air.
Starting in Oberammergau, Chris and I will traverse the Ammergau Alps heading west as far as our feet carry us on this day. The trail covers at least 20 miles and 8,000 feet of elevation gain. Support our run and GermanZero to fight for clean air.

I am a little lost for words about the generous donations. Together with Chris, we have already collected over 500€ to support GermanZero. It means a lot to have people who care and fight the good fight around you.
Caught up with a friend and did a little run in the thunder together today to have at least some last minute preparation. Clif Bar Bloks are ordered, and eyes are on Saturday’s weather forecast. This is going to be good.Share
