Triathletes Reduce Carbon Footprint of over 50,000 Miles of Trips
Wednesday, 24 November 2010
When you spend most of your time swimming, biking and running, you tend to be more conscious of the energy being consumed when you’re just sitting in a car or plane. For the 2010 Keuka Lake Triathlon, race coordinator Score This!!! organized to have the athletes reduce the carbon footprint of the race by offsetting travel in support of Carbonfund.org’s carbon reduction projects around the world. Nearly 600 athletes gathered at Keuka Lake to participate in the five events—the short triathlon, intermediate triathlon, aquabike, the duathlon and kids’ triathlon—and participants offset 51,562 miles worth of travel. Score This!!! officiates dozens of races each year. Learn more about how you can reduce your event’s carbon footprint here.
