Plogging for a Plastic Free July with Paddy Pallin - Melbourne

  • Studley Boathouse Cafe Boathouse Road Kew, VIC, 3101 Australia (map)

So, you like running, and you like helping nature.

That’s why we decided to put those two things together and take some action/fun!

Let’s go plogging!

What is “plogging”? Born in Scandinavia, plogging is the combination of jogging and picking up rubbish, helping the environment while keeping yourself active. How good is that?!

Now is up to you! Come and join us for a fun run of 45min to 1hr where we will help as a community while learning how to be an environmentally responsible runner 💚🌎

And for the exciting part: Paddy Pallin will be our partner in this Special Edition event! YES! The awesome Paddy Pallin crew will join us on the day as part of the #plasticfreejuly movement!

Not a runner? Don't worry! We will have a walking group for you! Everyone is welcome. Children and pups too!

Coffee, chats, and treats after we finish our fun run with our mates from Barrel of Beans.

What should I bring:

Active clothes according to weather conditions 🧢

Running shoes 👟

Water 🍼

Smiles 😊

Keepcup or reusable cup for coffee

Meeting point at the picnic tables next to the toilets/carpark

Look for our friendly crew and our flag

If you can't make it, please SHARE

Let's spread the love for our trails!

Need more reasons to come?

Karin will give a hug to every volunteer and we will have some good prizes for the weird finds thanks to our friends from Paddy Pallin and Salomon Running.
