BTR Road Runners have launched an innovative series of runs under the banner ‘Medal Muddle 5K.’ Each person taking part and completing the 5k will receive an ‘up-cycled’ medal, specifically those that have been left over from previous BTR Liverpool events with a re-branded medal ribbon.
The first Medal Muddle 5K will take place on Hoylake Lifeboat Day on Bank Holiday Monday (26 August) and it is hoped there will be another three organised before the end of November.
Each of the events will support a different local charity, in the first instance the engagement will be with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), with all profits from the first run going directly to the charity.
As with the up-cycled medal, competitors will receive a re-branded T-shirt from a previous BTR Liverpool organised event. By introducing this concept, both the T-shirts and medals, which can often just go to waste, will go to good use by encouraging community support, engagement and fundraising for local charities.
There are just 250 places available for the first Medal Muddle at Parade Gardens, North Parade, Hoylake. Entry is priced at £10 and registration is available here.
