A new and exciting way to run for charity - virtually
Our top Tree-Athlon fundraiser winner
Thanks to our corporate supporters
A massive Thank You to everyone who took part in last year's Tree-Athlon event.
It was a fantastic day with over 700 runners and £40k raised so far. We hope that you enjoyed it. Thank you to all those who have helped us to fundraise - the money donated to Tree-Athletes goes directly to tree planting so your support really makes a difference.
The event has so far funded 5300 trees that will be planted this year.

If you want to relive the glory of the Tree-Athlon click here to download our new free virtual run. The hi-tech software detects how fast you're running using your iPhone's inbuilt camera and acceleratometer, and plays a video of the scenic Tree-Athlon route through Battersea Park at your speed. If you run slowly, the video crawls along; start sprinting, and the video races forward. When you complete the 2km run, the app sponsor, thirtrysevendegrees, makes a donation to Trees for Cities.
See above for a flickr slideshow of the day showing all the fun and run activities.
Check out our Media Centre for great coverage we had for this year's event.
The Tree-Athlon was supported by The Times, Festival Republic and RSA.
“I'm going to give the charity Trees for Cities £25 for every goal West Brom score between now and the end of the season. That won't buy a forest, but it might make a difference.”
