Mackie’s Team to take on Scottish Half Marathon & 10k for Muscular Dystrophy UK


13th July 2018

In just 10 weeks’ time a group of Mackie’s Crisps employees will be taking on a running challenge for their charity of the year, Muscular Dystrophy UK.

2 of the team will be running the 10k with a further 6 employees tackling 13.1 miles in the Half Marathon.

The Scottish Half Marathon will take place in Edinburgh on Sunday 23rd September so lots of crisp carb-loading will be sure to be going on at Mackie’s HQ that week!

The Mackie’s Team are doing the event to fundraise for Muscular Dystrophy UK – muscular dystrophy comes in many forms but causes the muscles in the body to weaken & waste over time, leading to increased disability. There is currently no cure but Muscular Dystrophy UK are leading the fight to change this.

If you’d like to support the team in their efforts the link to their JustGiving page can be found below:

This is just one of the ways we are supporting Muscular Dystrophy UK this year, you can also pick up our limited-edition charity packs of Sausage & Caramelised Onion crisps or the Mackie’s recipe book to help support our chosen charity!
