The City of Cleveland will be hosting its Fourth Annual Cleveland Recycles 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 9.
"The goal of this event is to raise awareness about the benefits of recycling and reducing litter in our community. This year, the selected course takes you to downtown Cleveland and offers a scenic route through the heart of our city," organizers said.
There is no cost to participate in this event. Each participant is asked to bring five recyclable items (paper, plastic, aluminum or cardboard) in lieu of a race entry-fee to participate.
"All participants will receive this year’s unique medal. Let’s beat last year’s mark of 1,500 pounds of recycled goods," organizers said.
The race will start and finish at First Street Square, 225 1st St. NE in Cleveland, across from Trailhead Bicycle Company and the Catch Bar and Grill.
Registration is available online or at Terra Running Company, 90 North Ocoee St. in Cleveland. Register by Tuesday, May 29 to secure a free t-shirt.
To volunteer, contact Brian Moran at 423-472-4551. Volunteers are provided a free t-shirt.
Registered participants can pick up their race packets and race numbers on Friday, June 8 at Terra Running Company from 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Runners can also register at Terra Running Company that day.
Remember to bring your five recyclable items to the pre-packet pick up or on race day.
