The Sustainable Sports Foundation addresses the need to promote local athletic events that encourage a healthy lifestyle and supports the values of sustainability and giving back to the community.
In just our 10th year, over three-quarters of a million dollars has been raised through our events for our charity partners.
Besides the tireless commitment and partnership from our participants, volunteers and sponsors, all net proceeds from our events will continue to be donated to our mission and for our beneficiaries.
With the Marin County connection to the natural landscape and commitment to sustainability, the Sustainable Sports Foundation continues to foster events that are magnificently scenic, spectator friendly, gentle on the environment and for our community. In our effort to make the world a better place to live now, and for the future, we have implemented eco-initiatives to reduce the environmental impact for our events.
The goals are to have zero waste, to be carbon neutral and to donate all net proceeds to charity. Our inaugural triathlon was certified as an Evergreen event, first and highest level of certification awarded by the Council for Responsible Sport.
