Ep 253 - Turning London Marathon sustainable with Megan Hunt
Feb 05, 2021 Episode 253

Not every big city marathon can be as environmentally friendly as Edinburgh Marathon by getting rid of ALL water bottles from the course (snigger), but what can marathon directors and organisers do to make their races more sustainable.

In this episode, Jody and David quiz London Marathon head of sustainability Megan Hunt to find out more about the race's plans to lead the way in reducing the footprint of the race, its report on areas to focus on and where she sees the future of big city races in terms of making these more sustainable.

Oh, and the guys talk about the all-important loser fleece.

Enjoy!
