Running Out of Time for Climate Action

On Monday 1st July, the Running Out of Time relay baton entered Portsmouth, an important stop on its extraordinary 2,436km route from Ben Nevis, Scotland to Big Ben, London in the name of climate action.

Our own Marian Glover carried the baton between Stamshaw Junior School and Redwood Park Academy, on the 174th stage of the baton’s 210 stage journey.

Marian said “Carrying the baton for Shaping Portsmouth at the Running Out of Time relay race this past Monday was an unforgettable experience. It was more than just a race; it was a powerful symbol of collective action for climate change.

“What made it even more special was the chance to not just pass the baton at Redwood Park Academy, one of the schools that participates in our Shaped by Solent programme, but to have some of the enthusiastic students from the school join me for my final leg. Their energy and enthusiasm perfectly captured the spirit of the Running Out of Time relay – that together, we can make a real difference.

“This race is a reminder that we are all in this together and that even small steps can have a big impact. I’m proud to have been a part of it, and I’m even more motivated as we at Shaping Portsmouth continue our work on the Business Climate Action programme to create a more sustainable future.”
