Description

PLANT 5K Run & Walk is Louisville Grows annual fundraiser to support our mission to grow greener, healthier neighborhoods by planting 5,000 trees by 2025!




  •  Each participant will receive a collapsible, reusable cup with registration.



  •  Overall winners will receive free professional tree planting (minimum 1" caliper, native tree) on their property or on their behalf.



  •  The race-organizing team is working towards producing zero-waste event.



  •  Old shoes donations will be accepted on-site for recycling.



  •  Composting, recycling, and waste containers will be provided.



  •  Participant awards will be made from renewable resources by a local artist.



  • Tee shirts will be available as an add-on at registration. Given the significant environmental cost of making T-shirts (2,700 gallons of water to make a single cotton T-shirt, and 2kg of carbon), we have opted for alternative, more eco-friendly swag.



COVID 19 UPDATE:


The race-organizing team is monitoring the local, state, federal, and CDC guidance as it relates to the global pandemic. We prioritize the health of our community, above all else. Should prevailing guidance advise against holding the event, Plant 5K will offer refunds.





  • NO WATER WILL BE PROVIDED, as a result. Please bring your own water and water bottle. 




  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED when not running. Race organizers recommend using a mask while running. 



This event benefits Louisville Grows. Louisville Grows is an environmental, nonprofit organization whose mission is to Grow Greener, Healthier Neighborhoods. Our vision is to foster green, just and sustainable neighborhoods in Louisville.
