Plant a Tree
Offset your Carbon by planting a tree.
We are proud to attract runners from all over the world to our small Island. However, we want to offer our participants an affordable opportunity to reduce the impact of their journeys.
For participants needing to travel, or just wanting to help with planet, we set up an ‘Isle of Skye Half Marathon’ Tree Grove; to which you can add a tree for just £6. The Grove will be planted with native trees, anyone can visit en-route to Skye.
As a guide:
- 4 mature trees will absorb 1 tonne of CO2e per year
- A return flight to Boston USA for 1 person will use 1.6 tonnes of CO2e
- A 200 mile car journey will use 0.100 tonnes of CO2e
