On Sunday, April 2, 2017, celebrate the harmony of industry and nature by participating in the Second Annual Run AWAY 5K Trail Run/Walk and help bring awareness to recycling and solid waste issues.
Held at the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s Greenway Trail System, 6751 N. Jog Road in West Palm Beach, this 3.1 mile course will take runners AWAY through cabbage palms, cypress hammocks, marshes and lush pine flat woods, with glimpses of Grassy Waters Preserve and the Renewable Energy Park.
Proceeds from this family-friendly 5K Trail Run/Walk will benefit nonprofit Resource Depot and their efforts to keep reusable resources out of the landfill and put them back in the hands of those who need them in our community.
Immediately following the Run AWAY 5K Trail Run/Walk, all are welcome to celebrate at the free SWA Soiree! The SWA Soiree will feature earth-friendly vendors, educational activities, food trucks and entertainment. Grassy Wasters Everglades Preserve will provide guided nature walks on the SWA Greenway Trail System and visitors will be able to see the giant claw scoop up garbage at Renewable Energy Facility 2.
