goNewHavengo and the New Haven Road Runners are launching the inaugural CLEAN AIR RUN on May 8, 2016! The CLEAN AIR RUN is supported by the City of New Haven Transportation, Traffic, & Parking Department and the Parks & Recreation Department.
The CLEAN AIR RUN is a celebration of exercise, clean air, communities, and sustainability. Our vision is a healthy, vital New Haven. Our mission is to create a culture of ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION that powers CLEAN AIR.

PLEASE NOTE: The Clean Air Run is a Zero Waste Event! Our goal is to send ZERO pounds of trash to the landfill. Help us by not bringing in any trash and by bringing your reusable water bottle with you and a canvas bag for any materials you pick up. We will not be providing single use disposable items, like utensils, plates, and water bottles. We will have water stations, recycling, and composting services at the event.
As we are promoting active and public transport (walking, running, biking, city bus, etc.) we are offering reduced priced tickets for those of you who are using active or public transportation to travel to/from the race. For those of you driving to the race (non-active transport), there is a $2 fee for ticket purchases.
