WHAT 3 WORDS
This year WMP Events is partnering with what3words. what3words is the easiest way to talk about location. They have divided the world up into a grid of 3x3 meters squared and given each one a unique three-word address made up from words in the dictionary, which is all the information you need to refer back to that location. These 'three-word addresses' look like ///filled.count.soap which is the front of the what3words office in London. These addresses will indicate the real-world location of way-markers for this event and are a very useful way to report a medical incident to staff. Over 75% of emergency services use what3words to help them locate those in need. So for this event, we suggest that you download the app and make yourself familiar with it so you can easily find way markers or report incidents.
Trees Not Tees are part of The Future Forest Company, a UK-based sustainable reforestation project focused on the regeneration at scale of degraded land in the UK, typically working with races to offer the option of planting a tree overtaking another race t-shirt. Planting a tree is one of the very best things you can do for the environment – they suck excess carbon dioxide out of the air, they provide a home for a huge number of species and they give us clean air to breathe. Importantly, Trees not Tees follow an ethos of planting the right tree in the right place, ensuring forests are restored with a mixture of native tree species, such as oak, alder, birch and rowan. Choosing to plant a tree not only contributes to the planting of a whole new forest in the UK it also means that one less T-shirt is produced, Fast fashion is one of the worst polluters and contributors to climate change, and Trees Not Tees enables you to make a greener choice instead. At WMP we have gone a step further and will be planting a tree for every single participant in our races moving forward, which if we reach capacity will see 9,000 trees planted each year here in the UK. Each participant will receive a personalised e-certificate of their tree after the race, including the species, a photo of the sapling and what3words location to see the precise location of their tree.
