Welcome, Enviroracing!

Welcome, Enviroracing!

Thank you, Enviroracing, for joining Venice MainStreet as a Nonprofit Partner! “Increase your foot steps. Decrease your foot print.” Enviroracing is a nonprofit organization focused on zero waste racing. Its mission is to raise awareness in the running community (and non-running community) regarding being more environmentally responsible. That means no single-use plastics and only earth-friendly products and compostable materials. You can help their efforts through monetary donations, racing one of its events, volunteering your time, or spreading its mission.

On September 17, 2023, its EnviroRace 5K will be held in Downtown Venice. The course features two loops on the city’s famous, canopy, tree-lined West Venice Avenue. The majority of the proceeds are donated to a local environmental charity/non-profit, which is annually rotated. The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast, whose mission is protecting the land and water in Southwest Florida for the benefit of people and nature, has been chosen as this year’s recipient. 

About Enviroracing
[We are] “Just a couple of athletes trying to make a difference. Having done a combined 750+ races, we have seen the areas that need improvement. Having met with many race directors on ways to make a ‘greener’ race, the common conclusion was ‘great ideas but I’m not sure we want to take the plunge.’ So we decided to jump in, all the way in!”

Venice gravity sewer system repairs 9/6-15/2023

Venice gravity sewer system repairs 9/6-15/2023

The City of Venice Utilities Department has an upcoming short duration project to make repairs to the existing gravity sewer system. These repairs will take place over the next two weeks, Sept. 6-15, near the Venice Beach area and the 600 block of W. Venice Ave. Traffic will be reduced to one lane, so motorists may experience some delays. We appreciate your patience as these repairs to the gravity sewer system are made.
