In 2013, TRIBE co-founders completed the first Run for Love – a 1,000 mile run across Europe, from Odessa to Dubrovnik, to set up the first home for trafficked children in the UK. This was the journey that inspired TRIBE.
In September 2023, we're bringing the tribe together for the fifth edition of the epic Run for Love series; 225 km along the Swedish High Coast. Together, we will push the limits of human endurance and run to fight modern slavery. Join us for the first of our epic ultra training weekends in the lead up to the challenge! The weekend will be a perfect opportunity to meet like-minded adventurers and enjoy a couple of days exploring stunning coastal trails in Dorset, practicing essential navigation skills & preparing for September!
The training sessions & distances are tailored to those running TRIBE Run For Love 5 this year but the weekend is open to all trail runners and everyday adventurers.
