Beyond Monumental is committed to making our races sustainable for our local community. Beyond Monumental and our partners have held a long-time dedication to recycling, reusing, and reducing trash from our events. In addition to the steps we take to reduce the footprint of our events, we are committed to reducing printing and increasing our year-round sustainability efforts.
SUSTAINABILITY RESULTS FROM THE 2022 CNO FINANCIAL INDIANAPOLIS MONUMENTAL MARATHON:
We succeeded in keeping 2,850 pounds of event waste out of the landfill via recycling, composting, and donating. From the Monumental Health & Fitness Expo and our downtown footprint at the Start Line, Finish Line, and Post Race Celebration, we recycled, composted, or donated 40.3% of the waste. This result significantly exceeds the nationwide recycling & composting rate of 32.1%.
We’re thrilled that the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon reflects Beyond Monumental’s care for the environment. Thank you to Littler for supporting our Green Team and helping us tread more lightly on our planet!
