Tigershead Coastal Plog & Cleanup 7km – 24 Aug

19 Aug


Join Eco Marineplogging‘ (a combination of jogging and picking up litter) on August 24th! Eco Marine Adventure Cleanup is collaborating with The Green Race and Exchange and Empower for a coastal trail cleanup ‘plog’ on the eastern shore of Silvermine Bay in Mui Wo from 2:00pm to around 5:00pm.

The event will share a start and finish in Silver Plaza, Mui Wo with the Tigershead GreenRace 16km route and ploggers and runners will be able to cheer each other on! Ploggers will jog/hike as a group or in a few groups whilst picking up rubbish on the trail/shoreline between the race start line, Silvermine Bay main beach to Man Kok. You will then turn around and head back to the start/finish area for a total distance of around 7km. Ploggers are expected to finish at around the same time as some of the 16km race participants and can share the finish area, drinks and snacks provided by The Green Race!

As an extra incentive, ploggers will receive 50% off a future race entry (discount worth ~HKD250) to one of the short course races hosted by The Green Race! The event will be raising funds for Exchange and Empower using the Bravera platform! Eco Marine strongly recommends that each participant raises a minimum of HKD200 with a goal to raise HKD8240 in total for the event. Please connect to Bravera via the link (to be provided later on their FB page) and ask your friends and family to support your plog and this fundraising effort!
