Event description

Description

CompRUNew: Race for Zero Waste is a family-friendly event held on World Clean-up Day to help tidy our local neighborhoods. We are inviting the community to join us at Garfield Park in Grand Rapids, MI and run/walk a mapped route through the Madison area and parts of Oakdale to pick up litter near the sidewalks. Each runner will be equiped with gloves, a trash bag, and a recycle bag to collect waste along the route. Prizes will be awarded to runners that complete our Trash to Treasure Scavenger Hunt and a special gift will be awarded to the runner with the most unique trash find!


Our event is inspired by Plogging! (picking up litter + jogging) - A fun new international fitness craze for people who want to save the planet


World Clean-up Day was established in 2008 as a way for volunteers and partners worldwide to come together to rid our planet of trash - cleaning up mismanaged waste and other litter from our communities.


Proceeds from the CompRUNew: Race for Zero Waste will benefit Comprenew's electronics recycling efforts.


Multiple ticket options are available.

  • Free registration includes entry to the event.
  • $20 package includes registration, a t-shirt (S-2XL), and 3 complimentary raffle tickets for the chance to win a $100 gift card to our Comprenew stores (package available until September 1st)
  • Limited t-shirt quantity will be available at the event
  • Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 per ticket, either online or the day of the event
  • The raffle drawing will take place after the race is completed
