GREAT NEWS! The film “The Boundary Waters Traverse” featuring Alex Falconer's record setting trail run across the BWCA has been chosen as a finalist for the Webby Awards! We need your help. Please vote for this powerful film before April 21!
Last year, our very own Campaign Manager and trail runner Alex Falconer completed the first known attempt to run “The Boundary Waters Traverse!” On May 22, 2021, Alex ran over 110 miles in 38 hrs 15 mins and 3 seconds, through the heart of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to connect the Border Route and Kekekabic Trail!
The Running for the Boundary Waters project highlights the issue of potential sulfide-ore copper mining proposals in the watershed of — and directly adjacent to — the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to the running community. Trail runners who are also environmental advocates are using their running as a public awareness tool for issues they care about.
