Environmental Impact

2017 was the first year where the Maine Marathon made a concerted effort to address the environmental impact of the event, and we’ve expanded our efforts each year since.

With the help of Athletes for a Fit Planet, our water stop volunteers, and the course clean up volunteers, we were able to divert 63% 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.
