The City of Cleveland will be hosting its Fifth Annual Cleveland Recycles 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 8. 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.
Online registration for the event will begin in February. Information about the event is available at clevelandtn.gov/recycle5k.

Registered participants can pick up their race packets and race numbers on Friday, June 7 at Terra Running Company from 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Runners can also register at Terra Running Company that day.
