The Chianti Classico Marathon is officially PLASTIC FREE.

The edition of 7 June 2020 will be without plastic.

An important decision taken by the organizing committee chaired by the Podistica Valdipesa to further enhance an event that crosses unique places which need adequate protection. A decision also necessary to also give an important signal in times when climate change is mobilizing the whole world.

The Chianti Classico Marathon therefore on the occasion of the 4th edition decided to make a further qualitative leap by not using plastic in the organization of the event. Therefore, glasses and plastic material will not be used at the refreshment points and athletes are invited to bring their own glass as prescribed by the terms of agreement. Even the final lunch will be entirely plastic-free with cutlery and compostable material.

In short, a great effort by the organizers who firmly believe in the philosophy and in a future “PLASTIC FREE”.
