Bristol Rhythm Green Team/HOKA 5K Plog

August 13, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Date: Saturday, August 13, 2022

Time: 9:00 a.m. EDT

Location: State Street Brewing (801 State Street, Bristol, VA)

Cost: Free to participate (beer and food not included)


Plogging is a community and environmentally focused way to exercise. You pick up trash and recyclables as you walk/run. This event gives us the opportunity to call attention to the important of recycling and not littering and keeping our Downtown clean.

What to expect:
Meet us at State Street Brewing at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 13. Participants will have two walk/run routes to choose from, each starting in Historic Downtown Bristol, and then branching out to nearby neighborhoods in Tennessee and Virginia.

HOKA and Mountain Sports, Ltd. will be set up at the brewery with shoes to demo during the run and to purchase. The Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Green Team will be there to talk about volunteer opportunities at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival coming up September 9-11 in Historic Downtown Bristol.

The San Taco food truck will be on site at 11:00 a.m. so you can hang out with some good brews and food after helping make Bristol a greener place to live!

Participants will have the chance to take home some cool swag, and the person who brings back the most trash/recyclables will win a weekend pass to Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion!

Stick around after the plogging session for a raffle, where you’ll have the chance to win some cool prizes, including a pair of HOKA shoes and two passes to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
