Keep India Beautiful has been organising its flagship yearly event ‘Run to Clean’ successfully at Connaught Place since 2016 in association with NDMC, CII Yi, Reebok Crossfit Robust, ASSAR and other partners.
In this initiative runners are armed with biodegradable garbage backpacks and gloves, and clean the running path around the inner circle at Connaught Place. The event is free of charge for all. The participants includes kids, youngsters including school and college students, runners and fitness enthusiasts as well as elderly people. All the collected plastic litter is handed over to a Recycling Agency and rest is deposited in authorised garbage dump yards. Also a team of Theatre Artists performs a very interesting street play on Cleanliness.
Motivational music plays throughout the event. Third edition of Run to Clean will be held on 23rd of December 2018 at Connaught Place and we are expecting more than 5000 participants. It will start at 7:00 am and would lasts around 2 hours.
