_ The 2022 Enviro Race 5k:
Our "zero waste" 5k race will take place on Sept 18th at 7:30 am in scenic downtown Venice. The course will feature 2 loops on the city's famous canopy tree-lined road.
The race will start across from daquiri deck on venice ave and head west towards the beach. The finish will be at Daquiri deck and Centennial Park and include a post-race party with a beer garden, food (including vegan options), live music and awards.
Our main goal is to raise environmental awareness in the running community (and non-running community) and promote a "less waste" environmental responsibility with event hosting.
For our race there will be no single-use plastic water bottles, no plastic goodie bags or other items that just end up in the landfill! The water stops on the course will be supplied with reusable silicone cups that will be collected, sanitized and reused after our event. We will also be using compostable areca palm leaf plates and napkins which will decompose in our compost bins 8-12 weeks. We will be collecting all leftover food waste as well so please be mindful of placing items in the correct bins. We will donate the unused food to our local Salvation Army.
You will receive a souvenir silicone finisher cup when you cross the finish line which you can then fill with water from our multi use water system and of course beer from the beer and cidre garden!
Our race shirts will be made from a combination of rPET (the type of plastic that can be recycled and provides a market for recycled plastic) from our local sarasota company, 73 Threads!
There will be a bin to drop off your race bib as they will be reused and/or recycled.
The majority of our proceeds will be donated to a local environmental charity/non-profit which we will annually rotate. This year we have chosen The Coastal Wildlife Club (https://coastalwildlifeclub.org) a local turtle patrol group for Venice, Englewood and Nokomis.

Our post race party will feature live music by the Gazebo so feel free to bring lawn chairs and enjoy the music and beer after the race.
We will have a medal drop off bin for all those unwanted medals you have been collecting over the years as well as a bin for your used athletic shoes which will both be recycled and turned into something else :)

Just about all race bibs produced today are made from Tyvek, produced by DuPont. And Tyvek is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), otherwise known as #2 plastic. And #2 plastic is one of the most commonly recycled materials.
We would like to collect the bibs at the end of the race so we will have a bin for that.
If you want to keep your bib for the memory that's OK.
No refunds and no Dogs on the course.
