How can we help?

New Challenge: Run For The Oceans

During Run For The Oceans, we challenge you to participate by running as many kilometers as possible from June 8 to June 16. While most of our Challenges have individual goals, this time we need to run together today for the oceans of tomorrow.


The oceans are in danger! Marine plastic pollution is one of the biggest environmental issues in the world today. In fact, 275 million tons of single-use plastic is produced every year.

For every kilometer we run together, adidas will contribute $1 to the Parley Ocean School.*

Interested? Here is what you need to know about the Run For The Oceans Challenge:

Start: June 8, 2019

End: June 16, 2019

While the Challenge actively starts on June 8, you can join the Challenge already May 28, 2019.

This is a running Challenge, which means only tracked Running activities with GPS trace or Treadmill activities will be counted towards this Challenge.

If you enter an activity manually or edit an activity after completion, the activity will not count towards this challenge.
