EARTHRUN IBIZA 2010
- press release -

Join in for the benefit of your environment!!
Help us to raise funds to support environmental awareness projects in Ibiza

For the second time, Ibiza will celebrate ’
Earthrun’ a yearly international charity event which will take place on Sunday April 25 and start at 12:00h (Registration at 11:00h), from the Bar Funky Lizard next to the Es Pouet beach in the bay of San Antonio. Organized by Follow Your Heart Productions and the Ibiza Greenheart movement, with support from the town hall of San Antonio and various local businesses, the Earthrun event is open to the entire island community, bringing together children & adults, artists & musicians, local authorities & public, in an entertaining combination of sport and ecology.

At the signal, hundreds of participants will run, cycle, skate, walk (or even dance), along the coastal pathway and then back to finish in the Passeig de ses Fonts in downtown San Antonio, covering a distance of some 5 kilometers. (A shorter route is also possible for small children).
The whole event should be lots of fun for everyone, accompanied by samples of organic food & drinks, natural health therapies and special activities for children, plus a full program of live music & entertainment until the end of the day.

Ibiza is the first place in Europe to organize the
Earthrun event, which originated in the city of Vancouver and which is already successfully operating simultaneously in different cities across Canada and the U.S.A., raising environmental awareness and funding for local ecologic projects, as well as promoting sustainable lifestyle techniques and building green communities.

We believe that maintaining a clean natural environment is one of the main challenges facing our island, especially in summertime, with the extra presence of over three million tourist visitors from all over the world.
For this reason, the objective of the 2010
Earthrun is to raise funds for an island wide awareness campaign, involving local community action around the concept of promoting a cleaner island for all.
In this sense, we propose to launch a special cleaning and public awareness project in collaboration with local authorities. This will be consistent with the implementation of existing Agenda 21 initiatives and include some new ideas from the increasingly popular ’Transition town’ movement. Actions will include the drafting of awareness raising posters, special public exhibitions and an informative video about recycling in Ibiza. This is all due to take place during the summer season, when it is hoped there will be a maximum public participation from both local residents and visiting tourists, ensuring a successful positive result.

Participants in the
Earthrun event will help to raise funds by signing up and soliciting support from friends and family, plus promoting the event between individuals who wish to ’step out for a healthier planet’.
This year we also invite companies and organizations to participate by forming teams to make the event more consolidated and more fun for everyone.

* Please note that on Sunday 25th April, La Casita Verde will be closed for
  visitors and we will welcome you at the
Earthrun.
