Go GREEN Winter Beach Run 10 Mile & 5 Mile
Jan 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Winter Beach Run is going GREEN!

With the help of Beaches Go Green, a local non-profit focused on environmental education, we are committed to reducing the footprint of the 2020 Winter Beach Run and we’re asking you for your support!

You can help by joining us at the Going Green Winter Beach Run and support our efforts to Go GREEN. We will be providing recycling bins for every trash bin, as well as a compost bin for compostable food waste; so please put your waste in the proper bin. Proceeds from this event will be donated to Beaches Go Green to help with other local Go Green efforts.

Runners are the most health-conscious groups in the world so we should be the group most dedicated to the health of our planet. Some of the practices we’re implementing this year include eliminating the following:

  • Single use plastic water bottles given out at the end of the race
  • Single use plastic bags used for goodie bags
  • Paper entry forms – please register online or at 1st Place Sports in-store kiosks
  • Paper results – live results will be posted online as race progresses

Some additional efforts include:

  • Providing aluminum water bottle with race logo to all finishers
  • Providing compostable and Biodegradable paper cups at water stations
  • Providing reusable goodie bags
  • Providing recycling and compost bins
  • Practicing conscious purchasing decisions to reduce waste as much as possible
  • Donating left-behind shoes & clothing
  • Repurposing left over food by sending excess to local homeless shelter

*Beaches Go Green, a non-profit based out of Jacksonville Beach, FL, aims to spread awareness and education about the waste that we produce and how it affects the environment, particularly the consumption of single use plastic. BGG’s vision is that through awareness and education, people will make small “green” changes in their lives that add up to BIG things. If you are interested in getting involved or donating to support BGG’s education programs, please direct inquiries to www.beachesgogreen.org
