Eco-Friendly 5K in Los Angeles

Green Running Events

There’s a new race organizer in town; Heather Heath, founder of Green Running Events.

The concept is easy, put on 5K races around the Los Angeles area and structure them so they have the least amount of impact on the environment.

You’d think it’s a no brainer but you’d be amazed how much paper, plastic and glass ends up in the landfill after an event like this.

Now may be a good time to mention that www.GreenRunningEvents.org is a Green Certified business through www.GreenCertifiedWeb.org and we’re proud to have them.

I attended on November 6th and I admit; I was impressed. I’m looking forward to seeing how these races become more sustainable as they expand in the future.

Just a few Highlights:

Everyone needs to get there early to setup:

Anxious Spectators:

The ultimate goal:

First and Second place runners crossing the finish line, then very near the end, an 80 year old grandmother finishes the race:
