This was taken during the run segment of the K-SWISS ITU Subic Bay International Triathlon presented by Century Tuna in the Philippines.

Special attention was given on waste control in the race. There were active street cleaners who picked up the litter shortly after they were spotted on the road or the sidewalks, sufficient garbage bins, reduced use of plastic materials, and organized garbage disposal.

Just weeks before the Subic race, a certain Earth Day run held in another city had a widely criticized approach on their own waste control (too many water cups scattered on the street that got cleaned up too late).
