Keep Knoxville Beautiful hosts event

Keep Knoxville Beautiful will host a Trash Run in South Knoxville on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. Check-in will begin at SoKno Taco Cantina at 3701 Sevierville Pike at 5:30 p.m. and the run will start at 6:00.

The Trash Run is a non-competitive fun run and litter pickup for runners/walkers of all ages. There is no designated route for the event; rather, participants are encouraged to spend an hour running or walking and collecting litter in the area. Keep Knoxville Beautiful will provide maps, gloves, bags, safety vests, and litter-pickers.

At the conclusion of the run at 7:00, participants are invited to enjoy a free beer and taco and will have the chance to win a $50 gift certificate, all courtesy of SoKno Taco Cantina. The event is free but participants must register at or by visiting and clicking on the Upcoming Events link.

South Knoxville is Keep Knoxville Beautiful’s Community of the Year through June 2017, and this is one of the last events that KKB will host in the area. Please join Keep Knoxville Beautiful at the Trash Run and help make South Knoxville a cleaner, greener, more beautiful place to live.
