Past Events: Carlsbad Marathon
The Only Your Feet Hit the Ground campaign is a "positive reward" program encouraging event participants to be personally responsible for managing their trash and recyclables along the course while working to achieve their own personal best time. Support the Keep California Beautiful (KCB) Eco-Runner Challenge Champions who are raising awareness about litter and its relation to marine debris, positive actions to reduce its impacts, and funds for KCB programs.
KCB first announced its Only Your Feet Hit the Ground campaign in 2008. $20,385 was donated to the campaign supporting litter reduction and recycling efforts at the Carlsbad Marathon and Half Marathon in 2008 and 2009. The program was continued through 2010, and the race has continued to improve its efforts to reduce its footprint.
Let's keep the great program going! Please donate or register to participate today!
