KLM Aruba Marathon goes Green

ORANJESTAD — The 2nd edition of the KLM Aruba Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K will be held on the 2nd of June 2019. The Race is AIMS/ IAAF certified and this road race is organized on the highest International level. This time the race is organized with a green focus as all cups at the water stations are 100% sustainable, biodegradable and renewable. There will be bins located at and after each water station.

The course will be cleaned directly after the race. At the restricted finish area there will be “plastic bottles” for each participant and enough bins available. Aruba’s Brenchie’s Lap will recycle all collected cups and give this “plastic” a new life. “For the 2nd edition, we expect to welcome between 2,000 and 2,500 participants of which approximately one-third will come from abroad”, says the organization. The race is organized on an international level (AIMS/IAAF certified) and because of the various distances, accessible for everybody.
