Take that, trash!

Conley Sports, the organizer of the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon, wants you to help clean up trash on our city streets.

The second Trash Run of the year is scheduled for May 22 at Hops & Grain, 507 Calles Street. The final Trash Run of the season is set for June 17 at Posse East, 2900 Duval Street.

All Trash Runs begin with a community clean-up of the surrounding neighborhood from 6 to 7 p.m. and conclude with a celebration from 7 to 8 p.m.

At the first Trash Run of the 2014 season, at Porter Gastropub on South First Street, trash runners collected a combined total of 150 pounds of recycling and landfill from the streets of the Bouldin Creek and South Congress neighborhoods.
