For beginners and fun-runners！
～thinking about what runners can do about the environment～
Unfortunately, some of the processed foods we consume everyday contain excessive amounts of
additives, which on the long term are not necessarily good for our health. Also, excessive wrapping&packaging, consuming our precious finite resources, has become an everyday scene. So, for the sake of us and our future generations, let’s start thinking about an environmentally conscious way of living. In this running event, we will be presenting ideas for an environmentally conscious, healthy diet oriented way of living.
