Join us 'plogging' (a combination of jogging and picking up litter) on World Cleanup Day!  Eco Marine Adventure Cleanup is collaborating with The Green Race for a coastal trail cleanup ‘plog’ on the southern shore of the Starling Inlet from 9:30am to around 12:30pm.  The event will coincide with the Immortals trail race 27km 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 Luk Keng and CP3 (Kuk Po) of the race route where we can share in the water, drinks, and environmentally friendly snacks provided by The Green Race.  We will then turn around and head back to Luk Keng for a total distance of around 9km.
