5K for Clean Air: The Race for a Carbon Free Future
Here are some great features about the 2014 5K:
- Race t-shirts are manufactured LOCALLY and are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles!
- Clean Air Partners Pavilion displayed environmentally-conscious businesses and organizations in the community with tips on how to reduce your carbon footprint.
- Solarize Charlotte was onsite offering participants opportunities to sign up for a free solar analysis on their home.
- The amazing Captain Clean Air was on location to start the race and lead the awards ceremony.
- First and only 5K in the Carolinas to be certified by Athletes for a Fit Planet for our eco-practices i.e., t-shirts made of 100% plastic bottles, 100% online pre-registration and “virtual” race bags, composting and recycling bins onsite and much more. Learn more about our efforts to make our 5K the “greenest” race in NC.
- The event was chip timed and over 30 prizes awarded from Omega Sports with additional prizes for special categories from Great Outdoor Provision Co. and Mountain Khakis.
With over 860,000 North Carolinians suffering with lung diseases like asthma and COPD, it’s time to race for a carbon free future and protect the air we breathe for our children and future generations.
