City of Albuquerque announces ‘plogging’ event

Always On

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The “plogging” trend is coming to Albuquerque.

In an effort to clean up the Bosque Trail, the city is introducing the first annual “Junk Jog.” It’s a four-mile event where people will pick up trash while exercising.

Participants will receive a plastic bag, gloves, a litter grabber, and a t-shirt. At the end, each bag will be weighed and prizes will be given out to the bags with the most litter.

The plogging fun kicks off Sep. 21. The deadline to register is August 15.
