Run Catalina has been on the forefront on the sustainability of running for several years. Our most successful initiative has been to reduce the waste of cups in the Interior by making all of our Run Catalina races Cupless. In 2019 the Catalina Island Marathon applied for recognition as a sustainable event through the Council for Responsible Sport. Here are some of the initiatives that may be of interest and are important to recognize
In cooperation with our host, Catalina Island Conservancy, the Catalina Island Marathon is a CUPLESS COURSE! For hydration, participants can purchase reusable soft-cup. Paricipants may also provide their own hydration system. Thank you for helping us reduce the footprint on the island! You must have your own hydration system or purchase a reusable and collapsible cup from our store. There will not be cups on the island to help.
In partnership with our friends at BibBoards every marathon runner in 2020 will receive a set of custom BibBoards to use instead of safety pins. It is our goal and intent to eliminate safety pins from Run Catalina events by 2022.
We all have a purpose, whether a social initiative or a lesser environmental impact.
BibBoards are made from a recyclable nylon plastic and are reusable Share with the city planners you have gone away from rusty old safety pins Inspire and educate others to pursue the same vision
