Nordic Green Run 2022: Charity Run for Marine Environment

The Nordic Embassies in Singapore repeat last year’s success and invite you to join the Nordic Green Run 2022 from Monday 30 May to Sunday 05 June.

Nordic Green Run 2022: Charity Run for Marine Environment

With more than SGD 59,000 collected for the regional non-profit organisation Coral Triangle Center (CTC) last year, the Nordic Embassies once again invite you to join the Nordic Green Run in 2022.

This year, the proceeds will go to the non-profit organisation Seven Clean Seas, an ocean clean-up organisation whose mission is to preserve the marine environment by ridding the ocean of plastic for good. Since inception in 2018, Seven Clean Seas has recovered over 340,000 kg of plastic pollution from the marine environment alone and is focusing on infrastructure and technology solutions to stop plastic from reaching the ocean.

The Embassies of Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, and Sweden jointly organize Nordic Green Run 2022. Last year, 1,600 participants joined the run and covered 46,000 kilometers. From Monday 30 May to Sunday 05 June 2022, it will be possible to both exercise and promote a good cause by taking part in the friendly competition by joining the team of either Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway or Sweden. Nordic companies operating in Singapore are invited to sponsor one Singapore dollar for every completed kilometer by the relevant teams.

It is possible to join the Nordic Green Run 2022 if you are based in Singapore and willing to support a good cause through exercise. See below for information on how to register for the Nordic Green Run 2022. Please note that it is only possible to join one team.
