Sustainable running events

We want to get running event organisers to insist upon sustainable practices, starting with Sydney events that attract the largest numbers and dollars.

Sydney is the most beautiful city to run in, when the streets are closed and thousands of people gather to enjoy the sunrise and beautiful harbour. It is destroyed when the event produces plastic cups, plastic water bottles, non-recyclable take away containers, and awards medals that no one actually needs!

Start making entrants have mandatory gear, the first being reusable water pouches. No water pouch, then no entry! Offer recycle bins with bin monitors/volunteers to check people are doing what they should.

Finally, let's stop awarding medals and allow pdf prints online for those who want the bling!

Once we have these steps in place, we can look at many other ways to make running the most sustainable sport on the planet!
