We’re located on the Metro route to minimise car travel to and from the event and have a plastic-free solution to the waste of water bottles. Food and materials will be recycled and there is an audit of the impact of our event preparation and production that will help shape future years events.
This applies to our production partners and sponsors, whose services and support for the event will mandate that all follow sustainable best practice, and put in place plans to shift to better solutions in order to remain our partners.
What we can’t save and deliver without waste we will be offsetting – the challenge of which will grow as we attract more international runners and interest in the following years. From 2024 we will offer offsetting for all flights, local travel and event production, attracting a sustainability sponsor, to fund truly transparent and deep sustainability planning, accounting and communication.
We won’t greenwash the event – we will work with highly accredited environmental audit partners and share data openly to critics – welcoming the chance to spot any areas we can and should be addressing.
