Mountain Path


Let's Make Change the World

We know you've heard of Earth Day but have you heard of "plogging"??? Plogging is a mash-up of jogging and the Swedish “plocka upp,” meaning pick up, in reference to litter. We're asking participants to register for our race and pledge to pick up litter throughout on their path. Registration will be completely FREE, we just ask that you share photos of your experience to inspire the world around us, using our hashtags: #asc5k #theartisticsoul #EarthDayPlog5k

Note: This is a virtual run. The participant will choose a starting point at any destination, record their run time, and submit the results within 72 hours.
