The Eco Sprint was a three-kilometer fun run for participants of all ages, encouraging runners to embrace an active lifestyle while raising awareness about environmental conservation. A special one-kilometer fun run was also organized for beloved pets, continuing the township’s commitment to pet-friendliness while emphasizing the importance of caring for the planet and all its inhabitants.
