About This Activity

Join us for our inaugural 5K run at Seneca Park in Rochester, NY!

We are called The Green Race for a reason. Our events aim to contribute to the local community and environment by enjoying the outdoors sustainably, with each of us doing our part to lead more sustainable lives and preserve the environment. We see The Green Race events as opportunities to reset ourselves in everyday life and habits. We aim to promote environmentally friendly, ZERO WASTE race events in the following ways:

-       NO CUPS! The Green Race does not provide disposable cups (but we do provide water), so please bring your own containers.

-       NO DISPOSABLE VOUCHERS! Find all partner discount offers and codes on the back of your race bib!

-       REUSABLE RACE PACKS! Our race packs are reusable wetsacs for all your soggy post-race running gear. Also makes a great sealable bag for your muddy trail shoes.

Please visit thegreenrace.us for more info on The Green Race Events and global outreach.
