Why we need your help

Just a Little Run Around Britain...

The challenge?

An epic 5,000 mile run around Britain's wiggly, jiggerdy coast.

The challenger?

Simon Clark, Ecologia’s intrepid adventurer, who was inspired to take to the road after reading Rosie Swale Pope's book Just a Little Run Around the World.


On Easter Sunday, March 27th, 2016, Simon set off from Ecologia Youth Trust’s base in Findhorn, Morayshire, Scotland, after a 5km fun run with local friends and supporters. He returned to a hero's welcome on his 58th birthday, on July 5th, 2017. To view pictures and read more about the celebrations to welcome him home, please click here.

The purpose?

To celebrate Ecologia Youth Trust’s 20th Anniversary and raise £20,000 to support its work with disadvantaged children and young people in Russia, Kenya, Uganda, Myanmar, and Scotland.

Ecologia's vision is a world where all our young can thrive within their own communities. Since 1995 it has been working to enable children and young people who have been abandoned, neglected or orphaned to realise their own individual potential. Working with local partners, Ecologia empowers youngsters to create sustainable, resilient communities by improving their education, health and welfare, and by supporting them to protect their natural environment.
