If you’re searching online for running apparel this Earth Day, you won’t be able to purchase gear from us at rabbit. On Monday, April 22nd, to celebrate Earth Day, we are shutting down our website in the hopes of promoting customers to participate in our Stash-That-Trash Earth Day Challenge—a nation-wide community-engaging competition aimed at improving the health of local trail systems.
Inspired by the trail stewardship of our athletes, we developed the competition to promote the connection between runner and landscape, and to motivate individuals and communities to pick up trash on the trails (and roads) during runs. The competition, presented in partnership with Sufferfest, Sunski, GU Energy Labs, and Miir, is intended to bring awareness to the collective impact that the running community can make by stashing that trash.
The Stash-That-Trash Earth Day Challenge is open to the invited specialty retail stores listed below and individuals (or individual groups) on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2019 during the hours of 7am – 7pm (local time).
To participate in the competition, stash as much trash as you can during your Earth Day run then send a weigh-in photo indicating total pounds of collected trash to firstname.lastname@example.org. The specialty retail store team and individual (or individual group) with the most collected trash by weight will each win this prize:
rabbit: $1,000 gift card
Sufferfest: Sufferfest beer & pizza party/YETI Cooler
Sunski: 10 pairs of sunglasses
GU: GU Energy Labs Nutrition Pack (valued at $500)
Mirr: 10 camp cups
Additional prize: 5 Annual US Parks Passes
Participating running specialty retail stores include: Healdsburg Running Company, Santa Barbara Running Company, Boulder Running Company, Fleet Feet Pittsburgh, West Stride, San Antonio Running Company, and The Long Run.
