The 2020 Lung Run

In 2020, we organised the first edition of the Lung Run – a trail run during which participants measured air pollution with personal exposure devices while running a course around a coal-fired power plant. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic the physical race planned in Bitola, North Macedonia was formally cancelled and the event was shifted online to Strava, a social media platform for athletes. 

In the end there were 69 runners from 14 countries and 3 continents participating in the mixed event.
