Oceania Hotels, official partner of the Rennes "Green Marathon"
For its 2021 edition, the Green Marathon will provide a chance to discover Rennes and will feature 5 running and walking courses. Once again, Oceania Hotels is an official event partner and supplier thanks to an agreed partnership for our 3 and 4-star hotels in Rennes Saint-Grégoire and Rennes Cap Malo, located at the entrance to the city.
2021, a special edition: the Green Marathon is celebrating its 10th anniversary!
An ecological commitment
In addition to promoting the values of sport and solidarity, the Green Marathon is committed to sustainable development. Its objective? Organise sports races and raise awareness among the athletes, volunteers, Marathon Village exhibitors, and spectators about this ecological approach.
This public, eco-responsible event with its regional roots, excellent standards, and fun atmosphere embodies values that Oceania Hotels share and promote.
This year, you'll even find our hotel employees warming up on the starting line!
A decade of actions to improve the environment
“1 km covered = 1 tree planted”: for eight years, each kilometre covered in the five Marathon events has contributed to the preservation of the environment. This ecological approach is the brainchild of the Green Marathon's founder Daniel Jeulin and Jacques Rocher from the Yves Rocher Foundation. In 2019, participants covered 117,445 km and the same number of trees were planted! In eight years, race participants have planted 842,433 trees across France, Portugal, Germany and India.
