Runners and walkers owe a lot to trees. During Louisville’s hot summers, tree cover can make all the difference between powering through or giving up and returning home. So, give back to the trees with this inaugural 5K that benefits Louisville Grows and it’s effort to increase the area’s tree canopy (and cool us down). Your $30 registration also nets you a collapsible, reusable cup, and overall winners will receive a free professional tree planting on their property or on their behalf. Plus, in keeping with Louisville Grows’ sustainable mission, participant awards will be made out of renewable resources by local artists; composting, recycling and waste containers will be provided; and old shoe donations will be accepted on-site for recycling.
