Global Running Day – Plogging Run!

June 2, 2021 @ 6:30 pm

Join RIPA as we celebrate Global Running Day and help us clean up the Park by plogging (jogging + picking up litter)! We’ll equip all runners with gloves and grabbers and set off on a jog around the Park—we’ll see beautiful sights, exercise, and pick up litter while we’re at it! Expect 3 miles at a 10 min-12 min pace–pace can vary with the amount of litter you pick up! 

Registration is not required but recommended in order to receive updates and details (register here).
