On Saturday, November 2nd, Detox/Retox LLC will welcome sponsors and participants at the 2013 Greenway 2020 10,000. Attendees will be welcome to run, walk or support their friends and family. The Greenway 2020 10k is a great opportunity to build awareness of your brand and be part of the community.
The Greenway 2020 10,000M, is a point to point race starting at the LA Zoo, running along the beautiful and tranquil LA River bike path and finishing at Golden Road Brewery, a quickly rising iconic LA fixture itself. A huge finish line event, with live music, beer tastings, specialty food, and games will create an experience like no other race for the participants, their friends and family.
The race named after the Greenway 2020 project created by the LA River Revitalization Corporation. The race’s overall goal is to raise money and awareness about the outstanding people working together at the The LA River Corp. Their objective is to create healthy, vibrant communities with greater open space, enhanced green infrastructure, and better recreational facilities. LARRC is a non-profit venture charged with catalyzing responsible real estate and related economic development along the LA River. LARRC’s mission is to transform the LA River to improve people’s lives by carrying out sustainable land use projects, advocacy for river friendly policy, and programs for community benefit.
LARRC is working to create a continuous 51-mile greenway corridor that will run along a restored LA River and to build breezeways crossing the river at vital points of interest. The goal is to have this done by 2020. Think of it as a linear Central Park—a grand public space that will redefine how we move through Los Angeles. The LA River can connect people throughout Los Angeles, restore natural habitat in some of the most park-poor communities in the country, and leave an open space legacy for generations to come. Together we can enhance the quality of life in a city hungry for green space and strengthen communities by restoring the LA River to a vibrant green corridor that people from throughout the country will want to visit and enjoy.
