Wild Thang are proud to support BTR Road Runners who organized their first Medal Muddle 5K, which is a community running event, raising £800 for the RNLI whilst welcoming new runners of all abilities and having a positive environmental impact.
Wild Thang Managing Director Andrew Dwerryhouse commented: “When we were first told about the Medal Muddle concept we were so impressed and said straight away that Wild Thang definitely wanted to be involved somehow to support this unique community led 5K series of race events. We have been a supplier to BTR for many years so know the collaboration and partnership can make a real difference so we are genuinely proud to have got involved from the very beginning. As a company it ticked a number of areas from a CSR point of view, supporting a community volunteer led running club and raising much needed money for local charities. But in turn upcycling products to minimise waste. With sustainability being central to our ISO 14001 environmental certification it was a perfect fit to give those t-shirts and medals a new lease of life, making sure they did not get muddled up into having a negative environmental impact”
BTR Race Director Alan Rothwell commented: “We’re delighted to donate past race event medals and T-shirts as part of our commitment to going green and doing our bit for the environment. BTR Road Runners are delighted to have the support of our long running supplier, Wild Thang, it’s fantastic they are involved in this new and innovative initiative which also meets their sustainability standards.”
The next race is taking place on the 28th September 2019 with funds raised this time going to Pawprints Wildlife Rescue Charity.
