SUSTAINABILITY

ABP Newport Wales Marathon & 10K | NEWPORT, WALES

As race organisers, we are committed to improving our sustainability and minimising the impact of our events on the environment. Help us on event day by considering the responsibilities of us all below:

Consider sustainable travel

Why not walk, cycle, take public transport or consider lift sharing to the event?

Take your litter home

Please help us leave the city of Newport how we found it!

Help us recycle on the course and at the finish line

Recycling bins are located some distance after each on-course energy station. If you can, please aim your discarded bottle or gel wrapper for the bins. At the finish line, look out for our Environmental Champions who will be on hand to direct you to your nearest.

Avoid contamination

Plastic bottles are 100% recyclable, but only if they are not contaminated with any other waste such as banana skins or food waste. Take care when recycling them!

Dispose of your goody bag properly

New for 2019, we have introduced 100% plastic free and biodegradable goody bags – made of compostable corn starch. Please help us in our efforts to become a greener race by disposing of them properly in the green waste bin.
