TRC is organising a Plastic free kids run on 11th November (Sunday), 5:45AM
Kids have to report at start line by 5:45 AM
The Plastic free kids run presented by the Run Club in association with the tourism department Chandigarh administration is capped at just 400 kids aged 5-16 years old, run categories are 3,5and 10 kms.
This is a first plastic free event to show how sport can cut out huge amounts of waste and be more sustainable.
As sporting events are notorious in generating huge amounts of plastic waste We want to show that it is possible to put on incredible events in beautiful locations without damaging the environment in the process This is the responsibility of each one of us, whether we are organizing a massive sporting event or simply going for a family picnic, we must reduce the amount of single use plastic we use and recycle plastic if we have to save our planet from the plastic pollution eating into it. What better way to educate our little runners about this epidemic, they are the true campaigners of this cause.
