Plant A Tree Instead!

Don’t want a T-shirt? No problem!
We are proud to be working with Trees Not Tees for all our events giving participants the option to plant a tree instead of receiving an event T-Shirt.

When signing up for any of our events, participants will be able to choose whether they want an official T-Shirt or if they would prefer to have a tree planted by Trees Not Tees instead. Run End To End will pay for a tree to be planted in place of providing a T-Shirt. Or, if you would like to plant a tree and still receive a T-Shirt, you can do so by making a small contribution of £6 to Trees not Tees.

Receive Digital Postcards!

Unlock a range of motivating postcards and interesting landmarks to keep you entertained and motivated during your journey, Each postcard reveals interesting information about points along the route. Download them to keep or share on your social media.
