Marathon events or cycling events are typically organized and conducted for various charity purposes. Or, they can be designed for promoting a specific advocacy. The coordinators of such events are aiming to provide incentives to those whom show their support voluntarily (be they participants or advertisers and philanthropists). How can these people be compensated for running, riding or participating in these active events? It can be cold beverages or just cold and plain water.
Providing canned soda or bottled water for all the participants could be extremely expensive throughout the event and it’s not advisable, particularly when the organizers are on a tight budget (unlike events like the NYC Bike Tour, for example). On a tight budget, using some plastic cups may be more cost-effective. Instead of individual distribution of beverages to people who are engaged in a marathon or cycling event, setting up a designated drinking station will be a great idea, while having some disposable cups nearby.
You may be thinking that disposable plastic glasses are extremely boring and plain. Well, think about it once again. With the brilliant characteristics of the plastic cups (such as being portable and simple to customize), you could really change the look of these cups into a more vibrant and fun look.
The sponsors of marathon and cycling events would be extremely delighted to see the logo of their company (or the name of the business) printed on plastic cups. This way, not only will their brand be recognized by their target market, the image of their company would be associate with the event. The plastic cups will, likewise, spare organizers from cleaning the venue once the event is over. These cups could be simply stacked together, and then disposed of – with no hassles. Also, there are some materials intended for other forms of cycling. With some personal touches, it can be very easy for you to transform these used materials into something more useful.
You will never go wrong when you go for plastic cups, instead of glassware. From the start to finish, you will always benefit from using them, provided you don’t look at them as just ordinary drinking containers.
