Today is Human Rights Day. Join me and thousands of other humans tonight at 19:00 o’clock of your local time for one hour of walking and running!
Disclosure: I know one of the organizers of the One Run event, but participate and write about it as I believe this is a good cause. As you know: I’m keepin’ it real and tell you how it is - I maintain full editorial control of the content published on Hiking in Finland.

I run every week, mostly to a) stay fit for hiking and skitouring and b) because it is good for my mental health. So when I was asked if I’d like to participate today, on the Human Rights Day in a one hour run or walk to show that love is a human right and that no child should be hated for who they are, I said yes. The event is called One Run and is a truly global event every human can be part of - in fact, there’s participants from all 195 countires! While you’re reading this the first people are already out for a walk or run, and throughout the day humans across the globe will go at 7:00 pm of their local time out for a walk or run.
So please join us! Walking or running is absolutely amazing for your mental health, gets your head free and your lungs full of fresh air (if you walk in the city, don’t forget to maybe wear a face mask and practice social distancing). Walk with us so we can spread a wave of love, hope and unity around this beautiful planet! To get into the mood for your walk today watch the Live Stream on Instagram or Facebook, where the likes of Sopie Radcliffe and Al Humphreys will show up later today to inspire you! In that sense, put on your running shoes, warm clothes and a beanie, and go tonight out to celebrate this Human Rights Day!
