The Marchmont Challenge five-a-side tournament

Join us for our annual Marchmont five-a-side football tournament on Thursday 12 October and help us beat muscle-wasting conditions.

Join us and compete for the coveted title at this fun and competitive event hosted by Marchmont. 

We use our muscles to laugh to walk, to breathe and to play football.  For the 110,000 living in the UK with a muscle-wasting condition, these things become progressively difficult throughout their lives.   

Sign up your team and help us to support everyone living with these cruel and often devastating conditions. All profits from this event will further support the objectives of Muscular Dystrophy UK.
