ARE WE GREEN? WE ARE WORKING ON IT
Reasons to be part of the GreenRace!
We’re running a path to ZERO WASTE races in Hong Kong and beyond! We aim to generate maximum enjoyment at our events with minimum waste by reducing and eliminating needless consumption. Our wish is that runners of all makes and takes experience maximum enjoyment on race day with minimum environmental impact. Have a green idea to contribute? Please let us know!
NO METAL AWARDS
Our awards and trophies are made from FSC sourced natural wood fibre and also made for alternative use. To date, we’ve created awards that double as coffee/beer coasters, business card holders, photo frames and bread boards! We are always looking for new and creating green award ideas – If you have one, please contact us!
NO DISPOSABLE VOUCHERS
Every little helps. Find all partner discount offers and codes on the back of your biodegradable race bib or sent to you electronically by email.
NO DISPOSABLE PLASTIC OR METAL PRODUCTS + OPT IN / OUT
Right down to safety pins, we are working to reduce disposable metal and plastic products from our Racepacks! Most of the products offered in our racepacks are opt in/ out during registration. Opt out and donate funds to HelpHK and HelpSG.
NO DISPOSABLE RACEPACKS
We’ve had excellent feedback that our GreenRace racepack bags are lovely and practical. Made from natural jute fibre, they are reusable/washable bags for all your post race running gear. Already have enough carry bags? Arrive at our racepack collection with your own bag and we’ll return the deposit. One less bag to the landfill!
NO DISPOSABLE PACKAGING
NO DISPOSABLE COURSE MARKINGS
We clean and reuse all GreenRace fabric flagging for future events.
NO DISPOSABLE CUPS
Bring Your Own Cup – GreenRace does not use disposable cups. Our long course Green Race events have an opt in/out SpeedCup made for GreenRace by Hydrapak. Mr GreenJuice Bottles glass bottles are provided at some events and can be recycled in HK at their Chai Wan facility.
NO DISPOSABLE WATER BOTTLES!
We are partnered with Mr Green Juice to provide participants with one recyclable glass bottled beverage.
GREENRIDE SHARE – CAR POOLING / TAXI SHARING
Get to our GreenRace Running events a little cheaper, a little greener and a little friendlier! As part of our registration green options, we help to organise car pooling and taxi sharing. Register for this service here.
REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE
As part of our registration process, and as a service to our GreenRace runners at our events, we collect unwanted clothing, running shoes and non-perishable food items and work closely with CrossRoads Foundation to provide for disadvantaged children mainly in southeast Asia and Africa.
