Join a movement of runners committed to cleaner air and safer trails for our communities!
Bankwatch together with Eko-Svest, and 2 running clubs, TREX in North Macedonia and Trail Running Croatia are organising a thematic trail run on 25th October, in Novaci, near the Bitola power plant.
To raise the profile of air pollution from coal plants in the Western Balkans, do real time monitoring and show solidarity with the local communities suffering the immediate impacts. The race also has a charitable component – all fees collected will be used to purchase air pollution sensors for the Novaci municipality.
