    Water Tables

    201,395 sachets of water and 18,378 cups of Coca Cola will be provided for 21,000 runners on the Gun Run routes across the half marathon, 10km and 5 km fun run.

    The water

    Our water is sourced from K3 Water & Energy Sachets in Paarden Eiland. The water is purified by reverse osmosis and stays fresh in the sachets for up to 12 months. Our sachets are produced a week before the event, collected by Peninsula Beverage Co. and then chilled overnight. These are delivered to our water tables at 3:30am on race day.

    Waste collection and recycling

    This year we are focussing on waste management with our #Bangitinthebin campaign. Tables are provided with rakes and bins and manage the clean up in their immediate area. Kleen Bin are responsible for sweeping the entire route and the collection of waste and recycling from the tables and the start and finish areas. All runners are encouraged not to litter the route. Fencing is erected at points on the promenade to prevent discarded sachets blowing into the sea. Please be considerate to the environment and residents and drop sachets and cups into the bins provided.

    Unused water

    Our calculations are based on the number of runners and the likelihood of a unseasonably hot day. This means we always order more than we need. Leftover water is donated to local road races and the rest is collected and recycled by KleenBin. Empty and unopened Coca Cola bottles are collected by Peninsula Beverage Co. directly after the race is finished. If you would like water sachets for your event and are able to collect it on race day, contact us.

    Don’t forget

    Ensure you are hydrated when you are arrive at the event, don’t drink alcohol the night before the race and bring your own water to the start as none will be provided in the starting area. There will be Coke, Coke Zero and water at the finish.
