WATER policy at checkpoints for ALL (No cup policy)

Recycling / No Cups racing

The average runner uses 3 paper cups over a 5km race.
Over 5k, 10k, 21k and 50k, that’s a lot of cups. Let’s help save the environment racing with NO CUPS.
Use a reusable bottle, hydration bag or a foldable cup during a race, and take only what you need. It just takes a small effort from everyone to make a big difference in the world we live in.
