- Race entry to Two Oceans Ultra Marathon 2023
- A special Greenpop Tree Certificate with the forest coordinates of where your trees will be planted
- A Greenpop t-shirt
- A Two Oceans Marathon 2023 t-shirt
And if you’re still not convinced, we have some extra prizes in store for you!
- Raise 50 Trees and receive a hamper of Greenpop merchandise
- Raise 60 trees and join the Greenpop team for a day out at their nursery in Cape Town and one of their project sites, to learn about Greenpop’s work and what your fundraising is benefiting
- The fundraiser that raises the most trees of all will win a FREE ticket to Reforest Fest 2023 our annual tree-planting festival in the Overberg.
You have until 19 February 2023 to gain entry. Tickets are given to those who raise or commit to 40 trees first. Alternatively, use the fundraising minimums option and have until the day before the race to raise your trees! We'll keep you updated weekly on the leadership board. You can keep fundraising after this date, but all entries will be allocated on this date.
Already have a race entry?
Don’t worry! You can still raise trees and race for Greenpop, and be eligible for some amazing prizes. Your contribution is always welcomed: we need all the trees we can get!
What do you mean by "commit to raising 40 trees"?
If you are worried you won't be the fastest fundraiser and miss your spot, you can use the fundraising minimums option here. This means you will enter your card details, and by 19 February 2023, if you haven't raised 40 trees, your card will be charged the difference.
e.g if I have raised only R4,400 by 14 April 2023, but I have selected the fundraising minimums option and entered my details, then my card will charged the remaining R400.
This is of course entirely optional but guarantees you entry to the race from the moment you sign up for this option. You must sign up before 19 Feb 2023 to take advantage of this, then will have until 14 April 2023 to raise the funds.
What are you waiting for?
Get started by following the steps below:
1. Click on the “Start fundraising” button above to set up your campaign and start raising Trees to support our forest restoration projects.
2. When asked "Can you commit to raising a minimum amount of money for Greenpop Foundation as part of Two Oceans Ultra Marathon 2023 | Greenpop #RaceForTrees?" Click Yes if you would like to use the fundraising minimums to guarantee your spot (entering your card details), or click No if you prefer not to and set up your campaign.
3. Set your end date 18 April 2023, this gives you a few days after the event to shout about your achievement and get any last donations.
4. The first 5 fundraisers to raise or commit to 40 trees (R4,800) will receive an entry to the race.
5. You have until 19 February 2023 to gain entry- you have until 14 April 2023 should you choose to guarantee your spot with the fundraising minimums option (you must sign up for this prior to 19 Feb 2023). The final team will be picked on Monday 20 February 2023 and your voucher for entry will be sent to you then. You will then have until Saturday 25 Feb to claim your voucher. There are no late additions to the team or changes hereafter.
6. Funds raised after this date are encouraged but will not be exchanged for an entry ticket, just more trees in the ground.
