I ran 28 marathons and 18 ultra marathons and never discarded clothes. I wonder if this something they do in the back.

There must be ways to help if one doesn't just care about oneself

It is a great idea.

I also remember my gym a few years ago had a bin to discard used sneakers to donate to the homeless. A running shoe or other athletic shoe will lose its cushioning fairly quickly for athletics. But they are still wearable for daily activities.
