15th Annual Run for the Warriors

Sat November 14, 2020 Jacksonville, NC US 28540 Directions
Going Green

This year Run For The Warriors is taking its first steps in becoming an ecofriendly foot race. To do this it requires a team effort from not just our organization but from our volunteers, sponsors and even the participants! Listed below are some of our 2020 efforts to start our journey in becoming a “green” conscious event and how you can help!

  • Bring your own water bottle to fill up along the course and reduce the use of thousands of cups.
  • Don’t have a water bottle to run with? Stevenson Hendrick Toyota is proud to provide the first 500 runners that check in, a handgrip reusable water bottle.
  • All cups used at fluid stations will be compostable biodegradable, made from eco-friendly corn-based resin.
  • Our H20 partner is providing 75 gallons of water in large recyclable containers to reduce the use of 1,000s of plastic bottles and jugs at the finish line.
  • Run packets will go Virtual! No more paper coupons.
  • BYOB! Bring your own bag to packet pick up as we have halted the use of plastic bags, or thanks to USAA you can take home your packet in a reusable tote!
  • Our 2020 participant and volunteer shirts are made by an eco-conscious company. Check out their video here! https://www.bellacanvas.com/eco_friendly2000
  • Finisher tokens and partnership awards will be made from natural materials
  • Recycling areas will be available on race day with added volunteer roles to help oversee recycling
