Join us for the eighth annual Minneapolis Recycle Run 5K, 10K Run, and FREE Kids Run on Sunday. The 5K and 10K runs are a chip-timed event. Youth 11 and younger can participate in the free half-mile kids run. All participants will receive the official Recycle Run t-shirt with registration. The event benefits the Minneapolis Earth Day Clean Up.
FREE (must pre-register; no day-of registration)
Participants are encouraged to bring in used running shoes and shirts to donate for recycling.
Proceeds from the Minneapolis Recycle Run help support the annual Minneapolis Earth Day Clean Up which draws attention to our lakes and river and the effects individual actions have on urban water quality. The Earth Day Clean Up is the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s largest annual volunteer event and one of the largest community service events in Minneapolis. In 2012, more than 1,500 volunteers removed over 9,000 pounds of trash from our neighborhoods, parks and watersheds. More information for the Clean Up can be found at www.minneapolisearthday.com
