Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:


  • Trees not tees

    For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees

  • Avoid single-use plastics

    New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.

  • Optional medals

    Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.

  • Swim hats on request

    Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.

  • Reuseable zip ties and recycling

    Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.

  • Reducing car use

    At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
