We're a community and charity focussed event management company :)
We've tried hard to focus on doing the best we can on our sustainable approach, but we were too busy just doing what we do.
So we decided the best thing to do was to go 'all in' with a BIG GREEN project.
Challenging our focus and creating new ideas !
The event is not just our journey, we have an 'open resource' approach to sharing all our Big Green learnings.
So anyone and everyone who wants to help make their events greener, will be able to find out how we're doing on some of the big challenges we face.
Big Green actions underway:
Get in touch, share ideas, get involved and be part of something truly special...
We love active events and have a passion for wildlife.
So we (Curlys) are bringing a collection of walk, run, cycle and swim events to North Lincolnshire and Scunthorpe from spring 2023.
What started as a concept for a marathon event, has evolved into a Marathon of Events!
This allows us to bring something for everyone, growing the events year after year.
Bringing new people into the area, and provide the community with something inspirational.
Great challenges in fantastic and surprising locations.
We're challenging every aspect of our challenges to reduce environmental impact, and share our learning.
The events are aligned to target local environmental objectives.
These are hugely important and significant to the area. Scunthorpe (our starter and home town) is known for it's heavy industry.
It was previously known as an 'Industrial Garden Town' representing the communities love of green spaces, and the pride held in the town about the many parks, open spaces and home gardens!
So a perfect starting location.
Pairing up with our BIG green plans is our drive to help get people moving more. Now we understand not every challenge we do will be suitable for everyone. this is why you'll see lots of additional activities and partners joining us as part of our main events. so if you fancy a tennis match with the kids during our 10k, or a bike ride out with some friends while our 24 hour cycle take place, then we're all ready for you!
We aren't perfect and we will not achieve everything we set out to do.
Some green options aren't right or ready right now... and thats ok. We will do what we can, ask your opinion and work on the bits we could do better.
So get a bit fitter, go a bit greener... but trying is key, no one expects you to be perfect.
