2019 Xiamen Marathon has become the first marathon in the world to join the UN Environment's #CleanSeas campaign by adopting rigorous and far-reaching methods to keep the event pollution-free. Besides the reducing use of single-use plastic bottles and replacing the nearly one million disposable cups with biodegradable cups made from maize straw, there is no need to present the printed receipt of race packet pick-up. By carrying their identification documents and going through face recognition, runners can easily get the packet.
