Certified Events

The certified events listed below have met specific social and environmental criteria defined by our certification standards, which are meant to be challenging—not every event that applies for certification will earn it, but every applicant is encouraged and supported throughout the certification process.

The different levels of certification are determined as follows: basic certification requires achievement of 45% of total credits, silver recognizes achievement of 60% of credits, gold indicates achievement of 75% of credits and evergreen honors events that have achieved at least 90% of our certification credits.

We strongly encourage athletes, sponsors and host communities to support these events.
