Environmental Impact

2017 was the first year where the Maine Marathon made a concerted effort to address the environmental impact of the event.

Starting with recycling and composting, and with the help of Athletes for a Fit Planet, the Maine Girls’ Academy, our water stop volunteers, and the course clean up volunteers we were able to divert 79% of our waste from landfills to more appropriate locations.

In addition, the race reduced its CO2e output by using all electric pace cars, thanks to our partner ReVision Energy.
