Charity Registration No. 1042125


The 5000mileproject is an epic journey to run the length of South America; over 5000 miles, the equivalent of over 200 marathons in a single year, for the continent´s wildlife and wildlife. 

We are unsupported, pulling all our gear (camping, communications, science, food and water) behind us in a trailer we made from recycled materials

We´re updating 5000mileproject from the side of the road, providing articles, blogs, videos and education resources.

We´re raising money for BirdLife International and their partner Armonía  a bird and wildlife charity based in Bolivia. Money that you donate will be channelled to wildlife conservation in South America and specifically towards the restoration of Endangered Critical Ecosystem Habitats and endangered species.

We have met with our charities and will be running passed the projects  for which we are raising money for, to check on their progress. It is hugely important to us that your money goes directly to the wildlife and wildplaces that need it and for whom we are pounding 20 miles for, day after day!
