PLOGGING RUN WITH BRATISLAVA MARATHON TEAM
If you like running and you are keen on environment protection, this event is definitely something for you.
Visit Bratislava together with the main organizer of the Bratislava Marathon Team and in cooperation with the City of Bratislava and the municipal organization Waste Disposal prepared the first PLOGGING RUN 2019.

WHAT IS PLOGGING?
Plogging (in Swedish: plocka upp) is a combination of a run and garbage collection. This activity originated in Sweden in 2016 and gradually expanded to other countries.
In addition to the normal run, plogging also allows for other movements, such as squats and various forms of stretching while picking up garbage. At the same time, plogging cleans up nature and public spaces and helps it get rid of garbage, especially plastics.
The members of Bratislava Marathon Team love running and runs in general and love Bratislava, too. That is why they decided to add Bratislava to the list of plogging venues. If a look at garbage lying around the streets or scattered around nature trails gives you a headache, you can join the enthusiasts and take a 12-16 km long route (there and back) along the Danube. The run starts at Tyrš waterfront and takes you to the southern border of Petržalka.
The organizers will provide everything you need, such as hygienic gloves, garbage bags, high visibility safety vests and, of course, a garbage car that picks up garbage. Small refreshments will be prepared for the participants as well.
Do not hesitate and join the plogging run! Enjoy endorphins and a great feeling that you helped the nature and left it cleaner.
