Compete Green's endurance events, from 5Ks to marathons, revolve around sustainable practices and an engagement with the outdoors. Cofounders Tom Taylor and Ben DeWitt honed their hamstrings and toughened their hooves while churning up trails from the South Shores of Lake Michigan to Xterra's off-road triathlons in Maui. Tom and Ben found more common ground in their interest in environmentally conscious event management. Compete Green initiatives furnish their 100% free-range participants with sustainable awards such as tree seedlings and organic and recycled apparel. Race-day amenities include prevalent recycling bins, recyclable race numbers, and an athletic-shoe-recycling program.
