We need your help!
The Council for Responsible Sport is a unique non-profit organization that helps marathons, triathlons, regattas and other sporting events to be more sustainable. To us, that means more than just being eco-friendly; sustainable sport includes sharing the sports we love with the communities that host us. The main thing we do is certify races as sustainable. Think of us as a LEED green building certification, but for sports.
Sport has the power to incite passion within its participants, which makes athletic events a unique, positive environment in which to engage people. To date, 36 different events have achieved certification from the Council for Responsible Sport, serving over 570,000 athletes in the process, and that tally does not include all the hundreds of thousands of spectators at these events.
You'll be able to brag that you "knew us when..."
We're about to have a break-out year. We're working with the US Olympic Marathon Trials, the USA Track & Field Olympic Trials in Eugene, OR and the Great Britain Paralympics team. And the City of Chicago is using the ReSport Certification standard as their definition of a "green" sports events which entitles the races to a discount on their permitting fees.
In addition to making a donation now, help us by asking your favorite race to get ReSport certified!
