It’s small stuff, but it’s a start, and every bit helps. There are two main changes to the way we’re running events we want you to be aware of and need your collaboration on please:
- Cups: feed station cups are our biggest source of waste. So we’re stopping using them. Completely. Single use cups are entirely avoidable. There will be no cups at feed stations. Instead (for 2020 only) we will supply you with a re-usable foldable ‘soft cup’ for use as part of your race entry. You will need to carry this with you and use it on the course if you wish to use feed stations.
- T Shirts: we know many of you love and use them, so we will keep on having them as a race memento. However, we know that some of them get disposed of without ever getting used which is waste of resources we can avoid. So, when you enter you will have the option to choose “No T-Shirt”. The cost of your entry will remain the same but we’ll donate the equivalent of the cost of your T-Shirt to our selected charity, The John Muir Trust.
