Sustainability

Doing our bit

Run clean – let’s have a litter free race! We try our best to recycle, to protect our local environment and to respect our neighbourhood – but we need your help.

 

Water stations

Only clean water bottles can be recycled. Those thrown into hedgerows, gardens and trees cannot be!
Please look out for the drop zone and target bins just after the water stations. Whilst there are no prizes for the distance you can throw your water bottle, by aiming it at the target bins, you will be helping us to recycle and run a litter free race. This also helps our local residents as it means we can get the roads cleaned up and reopened swiftly.

Donate your start line clothing to raise money for British Heart Foundation!

We know how important it is to keep warm while you wait for the race to start but we hate to see your no longer needed start line clothing go to waste! We are on a mission to keep your pre-loved clothes out of the bin and have teamed up with the British Heart Foundation, who are able to turn these clothes into much needed funds for their life-saving heart research.

How can I help?

  • Look out for the signed clothing donation area on your way to the start line.
  • Drop any pre-loved race day clothing in this area. Keep hold of your clothing until you see the BHF wheelie bins.
  • We have a team of volunteers to collect up any clothing left by the start line, but it will help them tremendously if we can keep the clothing clean and place in the wheelie bins near the start area.
  • By doing this you will be helping British Heart Foundation fund their vital research into heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes.
