International Trails Day Plog-a-thon

International Trails Day Plog-a-Thon

A celebration of the Trans Canada Trail in Winnipeg

Due to a severe thunderstorm warning, the event is postponed until Sunday

Celebrate International Trails Day by enjoying trails in your own backyard. Join us for a day of plogging, giving our Trans Canada Trail some much needed TLC.

Plogging is a combination of jogging and picking up garbage (from the Swedish term ‘plocka upp’). It’s a perfect combo of fitness and environmental stewardship.

Sign up to spend a day on the trails, plogging a section of the Trans Canada Trail in Winnipeg.

Date: Saturday June 8, 2019

NEW DATE: Sunday June 9, 2019

Registration: Sign up below as a solo participant, or register with a team.
The more the merrier – bring your friends!

Location: the TCT in Winnipeg. You will be designated a 3-5km section of the trail. See trail map.

Time: Complete by 3pm, but start as early as you like! 

Cost: Free!

Free food and beverages for all ploggers at the plog-a-thon after party 

All participants will have a chance to win a Dutch bike! Donated by the Plain Bicycle Project. //
