**Due to the dynamic situation around the coronavirus, and the position of the governor and county administrator regarding non-essential public events, all of the SWA's educational programming, including tours and field trips, are cancelled until further notice and the Run AWAY 5K will be transitioned into a virtual race.**
The SWA Run AWAY 5K trail run/walk celebrates the harmony of industry and nature, bringing awareness to recycling and solid waste issues.
The Annual SWA Run AWAY 5K Trail Run will be held Sunday April 5, 2020, at the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County's Education Center and Greenway Trail System, 6751 N. Jog Road in West Palm Beach.
This 3.1 mile course takes runners, walkers and families AWAY through cabbage palms, cypress hammocks, marshes and lush pine flat woods, with glimpses of Grassy Waters Preserve and the Renewable Energy Park.
Proceeds from the run will benefit the nonprofit Resource Depot and their efforts to inspire creativity, conservation and community engagement through reuse. In addition, all participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Palm Beach County Food Bank
