The Great Run Company have been working closely with the team at Scimitar Sportswear to develop our range of official merchandise from recycled, sustainable sources where possible.
As an organisation, we’re committed to delivering safe and well organised events for participants and our host locations, as sustainably as possible.
This includes our choice of merchandise.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s relatively easy to explain in three, simple steps.
Pre-consumer fibre waste and post-consumer plastics are collected and gathered together.
The collected plastic is then converted with a unique process, reformulating the plastic as a recycled resin.
The recycled resin chips are then extruded and textured, and put on a roll as polyester yarn.
