Runner’s Edge Events Cupless Policy

In 2018, we used over 20,000 disposable cups at our events. That’s a lot of trash! Beginning in 2019, we made a point to reduce unnecessary waste at our races and went entirely cupless.

What This Means for You

  • There will be no cups at our aid stations.  If you want fluids on the course, please plan on bringing your own bottle or collapsible cup. We will still have water and electrolyte drinks at aid stations, just nothing to put them in!
  • For pre and post race fluids (coffee, hot chocolate, recovery drink, water, beer, mimosas, chocolate milk, bloody mary’s, etc.) please remember to bring an extra cup in your travel bag. In case you forget, we will have a limited fleet of reusable cups for you to borrow and return at the end of the event.
  • We will have separate waste bins for recycling, compost, and trash at all of our events.  Plates, bowls, and flatware that we provide for post-race meals will be compostable.
  • Our ultimate goal is to reduce our waste as much as possible. In 2019, many of our events produced just one bag of trash.

Thank you for joining us in our commitment to reducing waste!
