Knoxville, TN - Keep Knoxville Beautiful is excited to bring the first ever TRASH RUN to the Knoxville community. In celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd, the Trash Run will take place on and near the Turkey Creek Greenway. Participants will meet at Wild Wing Cafe in Farragut at 5:30 p.m. This is a non-competitive fun run and litter pickup for runners/walkers of all ages! There is no length specified for the event. Instead, participants are encouraged to spend about an hour running or walking and collecting litter. There is a participation fee of $10, which includes a t-shirt and $3 food voucher at Wild Wing Cafe. In addition, there will be door prizes available. Keep Knoxville Beautiful will provide gloves, bags and litter-pickers. Space is limited to the first 50 participants. Register by visiting and click on the Trash Run link. This Earth Day, please join Keep Knoxville Beautiful at the Trash Run and do your part to help make the community a cleaner and greener place to live, play, walk and run. Participants are invited to celebrate the Trash Run and Earth Day afterwards at Wild Wing Cafe. Support for this event came from the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon and the Town of Farragut.
