The Winter Beach Run is staying GREEN!
With the help of Beaches Go Green, a local non-profit focused on environmental education, we are committed to reducing the footprint of the 2021 Winter Beach Run and we’re asking you for your support!
You can help by joining us at the Going Green Winter Beach Run and support our efforts to Go GREEN. We will be providing recycling bins for every trash bin, as well as a compost bin for compostable food waste; so please put your waste in the proper bin. Proceeds from this event will be donated to Beaches Go Green to help with other local Go Green efforts.
Runners are the most health-conscious groups in the world so we should be the group most dedicated to the health of our planet. Some of the practices we’re implementing this year include eliminating the following:
Single use plastic water bottles given out at the end of the race
Single use plastic bags used for goodie bags
Paper entry forms – please register online or at 1st Place Sports in-store kiosks
Paper results – live results will be posted online as race progresses
Some additional efforts include:
Providing aluminum water bottle with race logo to all finishers
Providing compostable and Biodegradable paper cups at water stations
Providing reusable goodie bags
Providing recycling and compost bins
Practicing conscious purchasing decisions to reduce waste as much as possible
Donating left-behind shoes & clothing
Repurposing left over food by sending excess to local homeless shelter
