Running is good for you. Or so I’m told. I’m not a runner. But, how about running for fun, some prizes, a t-shirt and helping Keep Atlanta Beautiful! Well then the 5th Annual Race To Recycle is just for you.
Keep Atlanta Beautiful and presenting sponsors IKEA Atlanta and WSB-TV are “setting the pace for zero waste” on America Recycles Day with the 5th Annual Race 2 Recycle in Piedmont Park on November 19. KAtlB will be joined by WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore, who will be making her 5th appearance as master of ceremonies. The Race 2 Recycle supports recycling efforts by Keep Atlanta Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, and proceeds from the race will go towards purchasing supplies for neighborhood cleanups and beautification projects, graffiti removal and more.
Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. under the Pavilion at Piedmont Park. The 5K run/walk begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by an awards ceremony with prizes from IKEA, Phidippides and Zoo Atlanta. IKEA will provide food, water and coffee for all runners including their famous cinnamon rolls. This event is kid, stroller and dog-friendly. The Race 2 Recycle is sponsored by IKEA Atlanta, WSB-TV, Republic Services, Inc., Liberty Tire, and Zoo Atlanta.
