“On Your Mark, Get Set, Go Green!”




This week our sustainability efforts made the front page of YourDailyThread.com- a green lifestyle blog based here in Los Angeles! YDT founder Tracy Helper and Reel Green Media producer Lauren Selman have teamed up to write a “We Run Green” column on how training for the marathon can be more sustainable. We’re proud to share that the Council for Responsible Sport certified the 2009 LA Marathon as a green event and we’re continuing these efforts this year. Highlights from our sustainability program for 2010 include a new timing strategy built into your bibs (no D-Tags!), a new rideshare partner PickupPal, and Heatsheet recycling. Keep your eyes peeled for these great additions on race day. Click here to read “On Your Mark, Get Set, Go Green!”
