Brechin Pageant Running Ahead Thanks To Mackie Motors Backing

We're delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Brechin Pageant 5km Fun Run. The inaugural event, organised by the Brechin Jogscotland group, will take place on Saturday 1st June, and is open to anybody, whatever their ability.

"The Brechin Pageant is a central part of the Brechin calendar, and we’re really pleased to continue our support for it”, said Mackie Motors Managing Director, Kevin Mackie. “We also support British middle-distance athlete, Eilish McColgan, who is currently working towards the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo”.

The Fun Run is just one of a host of new events being introduced to the Pageant this year. This year’s event will also welcome Circus Alba, who, in addition to performing, will be delivering skills workshops. A Strong Man and Strong Women competition is also being introduced, alongside the usual Pet Show and stalls.

“We’re really excited to be adding the Fun Run to our programme of events and are thankful to Mackie Motors for their sponsorship of it.” said Louise Duncan, Chair of BRAVO. "Mackie Motors have been supporting the Pageant for a number of years now and we’re really thankful for the continued support.”

“We would like to attract more people to the group” said Rachel Rosie, one of the Jogscotland Brechin leaders. "We’d like to thank Mackie Motors, and also Lidl who are donating water and snacks for all the runners. Jogscotland is a friendly, welcoming group who enjoy meeting to run, jog or walk together. It's a great way to start running, and everyone is supported, so you don't need to worry about being too slow. We're hoping the Fun Run will encourage more people to come and join our twice weekly group for a bit of fun and chat".
