Each year, we encourage runners to collect any litter washed out by the ocean or otherwise – even if it just a few small items. It all helps. We will award a First Ascent garment to the individual/pair whom collects the most [quantity] and bring it to the finish line. Quantum Adventures will also employ 3 x individuals a few days before the run to collect litter off the coast in the Soetwater/Witsand area for an entire day. We’ll take pics of the result and post it on social media.
