Date- 21st July 2019 | Venue- Leisure Valley Ground, Gurugram.
This is an event where participants run or walk to bring more attention to the negative environmental impacts caused by plastics. The event also seeks to create additional awareness on this very important issue. This event is organized by IRS and is the first of its kind in Delhi.
The Zero Plastic Marathon will continue annually until the single-use plastics in our everyday lives is zero, and until India becomes a zero single-use plastic nation. We all have a responsibility as individuals to achieve this goal.
The main aim of the “Zero Plastic Marathon” is to advocate for banning or minimizing the use of everyday plastics which harm the environment. We want to increase the awareness on this serious issue. Our call is for the use of zero single-use plastics in our daily lives. We recognize that, this goal cannot be achieved overnight by just us alone. However, we believe that it is very important for each and every one to make a start and stay on this very important journey to zero single-use plastics.
Anyone and everyone can join the Zero Plastic Marathon! We encourage individuals and people from all walks of life – the civil servants and politicians, corporate and NGOs, uniformed services, students and educators, artists and entertainers, doctors, nurses and care-givers, families and friends, and all others – to join the run and begin their journey towards a plastic free lifestyle.
This edition of Zero Plastic Marathon is featuring a half marathon(21.1Km), 10.5Km Run, 5Km Run and 2.5Km Run. Of course it's a timed event.
There are exciting gifts and awards for winners.
The proceeds, less administrative expenses, will be given to selected environmental NGOs for initiatives towards achieving the goal of the Zero Plastic.
Yes, of course.
The entire event will be carried out without the use of harmful single-use plastics, and you are all requested not to use single-use plastics at the event. Additionally, you can show your commitment to the cause by joining the Pledge for Zero Plastic: After completing the run/walk individuals and institutions will be invited to take a pledge to support Zero Plastics by palm-printing on a cloth banner placed at the Zero Plastic Marathon finish line.
