THE

GREEN SPORT FOUNDATION
Let’s play outside!

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery – air, mountains, trees, people. I thought this is what it is to be happy”

Sylvia Plath

The Green Sport Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on the development and promotion of nature sport and recreational activities.

We develop trail infrastructure and promote green (nature) sport activities such as mountain biking, trail running and hiking. Through our Trail Town Network we help cities and towns develop, package and promote their local trails to build a sustainable tourism product, create jobs and advance a healthier local society.

Trails and green ways provide natural, scenic areas that provides the opportunity for people to be outside, social and physically active. This connection with nature improves mental and physical wellness.

– John Muir
