Brief Background on Event:
About 1,000 female athletes compete in a 500 yd swim/15 mile bike/2.5 mile run at Lake Nokomis. Race organizers wanted to build upon their low-waste efforts of the last two years, and made a number of sustainability pledges through FitPlanet, such as online-only registration, no disposable plastic water bottles, and composting of all food and serviceware.
