Memphis has the best public park in Shelby Farms! We now have a Greenline that connects a large part of the city for bikers, runners, and walkers! Last year, the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy started a 1/2 Marathon. This year they worked with the Council for Responsible Sport to get their ReSport Certification! Good job!
For those of you that have been to a 5K, 10K, etc. race, you know how much trash these races can generate. Here are some of the changes that they made to make their race more environmentally friendly!
- Solar powered race timing
- Use of Biodegradable water cups at water stations
- Composting food waste and utensils at the after party
- Online/paperless registration
- Virtual race bags
For those of you in the Shelby County area, come out and support the efforts make by the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy!
