All checkpoints will have water, electrolyte, and a small variety of food, but will have no cups.
Run Queensland are committed to preserving the environment in which we are privileged to stage our events.
With this in mind, we no longer provide disposable cups at checkpoints.
As such, participants will need to carry their own cup for drinks they don’t want to put in their hydration pack or water bottle (eg. electrolyte).
Our ‘no cup’ initiative has been a huge success since implementation in 2015 with the combined waste from checkpoints being greatly reduced.
