Dear WPA Clubs


The WPA Road Running Commission would like to appeal to all events to participate in the #RunClean campaign.

By various means we will create awareness amongst the runners to not drop their plastic sachets and to use the containers provided.

However, to do this we require YOUR cooperation to ensure that races deliver a consistent standard of litter management.

We ask that your race committees read and implement the attached litter plan guidelines.

  Litter Plan Guidelines for Organisers


We ask all clubs to create awareness amongst their members about irresponsible littering.


Drink your water

Think about how you are going to dispose of the empty sachet

Hold it until you can dispose of it responsibly

Put the sachet into a bin
