It's common practice at many running events, to have runners throw their cups down when they're finished with them. The irony of this particular case does not escape me, however.

A. they are biodegradable cups
B. they do pick them up after the race you know. Its not like they just leave them there in the gutter.

K.

So I've volunteered at Marathon Runs before, the last one being the Memorial Run in OKC last April. This happens because runners don't have time to drop off their cups at a trashcan 20 feet away from the road. We have people on stand-by that, during and at the end, pick up the cups.

I understand that the content is merely a joke, however people are taking it seriously.

which is stupid.

To all the people arguing that those cups are biodegradable.
Yeah, those cups are going to decompose straight through that road.

WHOA WHOA WHOA

Wait a minute, this is a horrible display of hypocrisy, I mean, it's not as if there are dozen of volunteers waiting until the participants have passed them so they can go and clean up those cups, they are totally going to leave them there for weeks, letting puppies and baby deer eat them and get horrible stomach herpes and die from their bio-degradable-ness.
