Since 1994, the York Road Runners Club has faithfully been cleaning both sides of a 2 mile stretch of Grantley Road (between Country Club Rd., and George St.). Under the careful guidance of project initiators Jack Goodwin and Scott Madison, our commitment to keep the road clean has been met.

The job can be completed by 4 people and takes only an hour or two of your Sunday morning. If we each take a turn, we will only have to pick up once every 20 years. Please participate if you can.
