What do you get when a bunch of Swedes, foodies, adventurers and sports lovers team up? A city-wide plog! A Swedish tradition, plogging is running and picking up litter.

Join Emeryville companies Clif BarDecathlon, and IKEA Emeryville to “Clean-Up to Green-Up” in partnership with Emeryville Council-member John Bauters and Save the Bay! Whether you’re plogging or “plalking,” it’ll be fun for the whole family (multiple routes available). Enjoy food, prizes and more.

  • 10 am-12 pm After Party: Decathlon (3938 Horton St)

** ARRIVE EARLY ** We will be handing out Plogging t-shirts for the first 100 participants!

All routes finish at Decathlon Emeryville, where you can enjoy:

  • Free swag from participating companies
  • Food & refreshments
  • Prizes and giveaways
  • Winners from the social media contest are announced – this could be you
  • Learn about protecting the environment from the experts at Save the Bay
  • Photo wall for fun photo ops

What to bring:

  • Sturdy running shoes
