Innovators in Sustainability

The Green Lion

Once again, we are delighted to bring you the Green Lion Award in recognition of innovators in environmental sustainability for running/racing events. With our partners at Recover Brands, we’re celebrating races that, like Recover Brands, are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of our sport.

The races below are events that runners nominated to The BibRave 100 and that have integrated sustainable practices into their race operations to reduce the carbon footprint of their event. Some examples include recycling and composting; sourcing recycled swag and local, organic food; reducing waste and donating leftover materials; and providing tap water instead of small plastic water bottles. 🌎
