A monthly plogging event focusing on fun, disco and impact
Next Edition: Saturday 10th June (Portugal Day!)
What is PlogX?
The first Saturday of the month (as a general rule of thumb), I take people out on a plog around Haarlem
Plogging is basically jogging and picking up trash! But trust me.. we make it fun!
It is for around an hour and at a very relaxed pace - we will cover 4-5km in the hour - it is definitely a jog and not a walk, but with lots of stops to talk to people, dance and take selfies! (lots of selfies!)
Why 'plogx'? because it is hosted by RunX (my favourite running shop in Haarlem) - so.. Plogging with Run X = PlogX! hahaha
Saturday 10th June! 11:00-12:00
Edition: Portugal Day (let's celebrate our Portuguese ploggers and trash warriors!)
We now have PlogX shirts!
Iron roots (they are a sponsor of mine) have provided plastic free running shirts and i got them printed myself at home!! We have team shirts! (you can either slip them over your own shirt or change into them - because we start at RunX there is a changing room)..
(no.. you don't get to keep them! hahah - i will wash them and use each month)
For numbers, I kinda like to know in advance if you are coming.
You can let me know via email or the contact page
It isn't just a 'let's go run and pick up trash'.. nope.. I will more than likely be in a banana suit, and there will definitely be fun music!
Why disco music? Because it makes people smile!
The more fun we make it, the more people notice us, and the bigger the impact we can make!!
Here are the details you need.
Date: usually the first Saturday of each month (exact dates below)
Time: 11:00 to 12:00 (ish)
Fee: completely free - and RunX provide coffee and tea afterwards
You need to bring: Come in your running gear (very gentle pace), and some gloves
We provide: bags, music and an infectious energy that is as contagious as a yawn at a 19th-century poetry recital
Location: RunX Haarlem Kruisstraat 7, 2011 PV Haarlem
