You are invited to the San Diego River Park Foundation’s first ever Trash Trot Along the San Diego River Virtual 5k!
The San Diego River misses you! What better way to reconnect to our River than by showing it a little love? The San Diego River Park & Trail System offers miles of river-front trails just waiting to be explored! Join our Trash Trot and discover a new section of the river or revisit one of your favorites! With our regular volunteer programs on hold due to COVID-19, this is a great way for you to lend a hand while staying physically distant from others. As you walk, jog, run, bike, or skate along the river on your own, we encourage you to do a solo or family cleanup and pick up trash as you go.
When you participate in our Trash Trot Along the San Diego River on Friday, October 2nd through Sunday, October 4th, you get to personalize your experience by choosing your own river-side route, starting time, pace, and mode of active transportation.
Although we will be staying physically distant and tackling our routes separately, we encourage you to stay connected through social media! We invite you to follow along and share your adventure on our Instagram and Facebook throughout the weekend! Share photos and videos of your fitness feats, trashy treasures, or nature noticings to build our virtual community of trash trotters.
When you register for this free event, we will mail you our limited edition Trash Trot sticker to commemorate this one-of-a-kind event.
Prepare: Once registered, select your route and gather your supplies so you’re ready to hit the trail sometime on 10/2 – 10/4! The beauty of this virtual 5k is that you can complete your 5k anytime you want over the course of the entire weekend.
Explore: Complete your 5k route individually or with your household sometime between Friday, October 2nd and Sunday, October 4th. Pick up trash and enjoy the scenic views as you go!
