With increasing recognition of the environmental challenges that we are facing, we first teamed up with The Pickwell Foundation and Plastic Free North Devon in 2018 to encourage greater consideration for the environment as an event, and for the competitors taking part.
After the success of making Croyde Ocean Triathlon the first plastic free event in the UK in 2018, we have since focused on reducing the carbon footprint of the event.
Now in 2023 the event is owned by environmental charity Plastic Free North Devon and we will be working hard to make this event the most sustainable sports event in the UK. Keep an eye here and on our socials for news of how we are going to be doing this. We know we can’t achieve it all at once but we will be making changes to improve the sustainability of the event.
We can all do our part!
