GOING GREEN FOR 2019!
Posted: Feb 2019
This year we've teamed up with refill.ie to provide filtered water in reusable cups at our water stations and Race HQ, eliminating approximately 12,000 single use plastic water bottles. Runners are requested to place used cups into the receptacles provided. They can then be collected and steam-cleaned for future use.
