From Routes to Roots

From Routes to Roots: Join the second project of the Count & Last initiative and turn your sporting performances into trees! The project starts on 1 October and is supporting a regional reforestation project. In cooperation with ClimatePartner, the campaign contributes to the transformation of forests in Germany into mixed forests and hence their adaptation to climate change. Let’s exercise and collect as many kilometres as possible, be it through cycling, running, or swimming. The collected kilometres will be converted into trees, which we will plant together with our Class of 22 athletes. Our runner Christina Hering and our triathlete Franca Henseleit are among the athletes to assist with the reforestation. Join us in the tree planting activity and get to know the athletes up close.

Make your activities count!

The goal is to collect as many kilometres as possible from 1 to 31 October 2021. Track your training – running, cycling, or swimming - directly in our European Championships Munich 2022 Strava Club. We will count your kilometres and convert them into trees. Up to 1,000 trees can be planted within the project.
