The Sustainability Academy, the smallest public elementary school in Burlington, located in the heart of the Old North End, is once again hosting a great event. Our 10th Annual Harvest Run for Sustainability is happening but will be virtual again this year.
We invite anyone in our greater community to pick one of our specially curated routes in the Intervale or around the Old North End (1 k, 3k, 5k, and 10k options available!) and walk or run this route with friends or family anytime during the week of Sunday, October 10th-Sunday, October 17th.
We also encourage people to note the social and/or natural history of our community and we will have a place to submit your photos and/or descriptions of what you see/hear/smell along your route. Simply tag it with #SAHarvestRun and/or post to our Facebook Event Page.
