TROT FOR TREES

Event Description

Enjoy the fresh air (socially distant, of course) while raising money and awareness of our tree planting initiative. Sign up to run, walk and/or bike a 5k anytime from January 1-17, 2021. Each event costs $5 and 100% of proceeds contribute directly to our tree planting event. Burn off those holiday calories with a partner by participating in a running relay. Each relay team costs $8 and consists of two people running a 5k individually. The team with the fastest total time wins! Challenge your friends and keep an eye on our leaderboard. 

 

Did someone say PRIZES?! The fastest time in each category (running, biking, walking, and relay team) will receive a free, eco-friendly prize by the end of the event! But wait, there’s more! A random participant in each category will also be selected to win a prize so sign up! The more events you sign up for, the more chances you get to win the special prize.

Participation

After signing up, run/walk/ bike your 5k event anytime and anywhere from January 1-8, 2021. Be sure to record your mileage and time through an app that shows both. Here are some great apps you may use. We personally recommend Strava or Garmin Connect (requires a garmin watch). To verify your time in order to qualify for our leaderboard, please email a screenshot of your completion of the 5k to greenkeepers.usa@gmail.com
