Klean Kanteen is the Official Sustainability Partner of the Ragnar Trail Series

March 30 2016

Klean Kanteen is proud to partner with the Ragnar Trail Series as the event’s Official Sustainability Partner for 2016. With its many trail-running events across the country, Klean is excited to help support Ragnar's efforts to eliminate single-use waste along the way.

All Ragnar trail events are “cupless,” which means that every participant needs to bring their own drinking container, which they can fill up at various Klean Kanteen hydration stations at each race. 

“Klean Kanteen and Ragnar truly align when it comes to the elimination of single-use containers. Ragnar is proud to host entirely “cupless” events and Klean is the ideal partner for encouraging participants and spectators to use their own containers,” says Shelayne Barrett, Partnership Activation Manager for Ragnar Trail Series.

Last year, Klean Kanteen partnered with over 80 events in the country to provide 50,000 gallons of free, filtered drinking water to more than 400,000 attendees. In doing so, Klean prevented 450,000 single-use cups from being trashed, 400,000 plastic bottles from entering the waste stream and inspired attendees to shift their habits from to-go cups and bottled water to reusable products that last a lifetime.

Our partnership with Ragnar includes 19 events across the country and inclusion in all the gear-up events at the REI closest to each race location. There will also be Klean Kanteen free filtered water stations at each event for unlimited fill-ups and use. Want to volunteer or sign up for the Ragnar Trail Series? You can do so here
