The Pterodactyl is the third sprint triathlon in the RF Events T-Rex series. As the course and event area is the same for all of them, the Zero Waste setup and servicing has become pretty routine. The biggest challenge remains getting there during rush hour traffic on Wednesday afternoons. As usual, the main Zero WasteContinue reading “Pterodactyl Tri 2022 Sustainability Report”
The Triceratops is the second sprint triathlon in the RF Events T-Rex series. And as with the first one (the Stegosaurus), the weather was perfect and things went smoothly.

A beautiful morning, sunshine, happy athletes, and a hardworking Green Team that produced another terrific landfill diversion result. That’s a combination hard to beat!
Another good result from the summer triathlon series, although trash was higher than usual due to time crunch.
Well, that was a relief. After the frenetic scramble of Oberun, it was great to recover with a simple, straightforward event where the Zero Waste effort went as planned.
