Runners Will be Disqualified for Dropping Litter

BBC News reports that runners at north Wales’ largest running event were warned they would be disqualified if they dropped litter during the race. According to the organizers of the race, measures had been introduced as plastic was becoming an “increasing problem”. Organizers have not yet publicized if anybody had been disqualified following the race.

In fact, Run Wales is following a growing trend among race organizers to reduce the environmental impact of events.

In April 2019, the London Marathon took several measures to reduce litter after clearing 47,000 plastic bottles from the streets a year ago, including using compostable cups rather than plastic bottles at some stations along the route, and using plastic bottles made wholly or partly from recycled plastic.

This year’s Cardiff Half Marathon used 100% recyclable plastic bottles, recycled paper for all print advertising and medals made from recycled zinc.
