goNewHavengo & the New Haven Road Runners launched the inaugural Clean Air Run on May 8, 2016. We had 150 people register and raised over $2,400 for our work in New Haven! Our second Clean Air Run, on Saturday, May 13, 2017 in conjunction with ArtWalk, will be even bigger and better than the first!
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. All Run proceeds will support goNewHavengo and creating a healthier, more sustainable New Haven community.

PLEASE NOTE: The Clean Air Run is a Zero Waste Event! Our goal is to produce ZERO pounds of trash. Help us by not bringing in any trash and by bringing a 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, however, 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.
