Metalube Product Manager Runs Marathon and Raises Funds for Francis House Children's Hospice

Thursday, 18 April 2019

Big congratulations to Wayne Thornhill, Metalube’s Global Product Manager, who earlier this month joined the thousands of runners taking part in the mammoth 26.2 miles, Asics Greater Manchester Marathon on Sunday 7th April 2019.

Wayne’s run was sponsored by his employer, global lubricant manufacturer, Metalube, raising a fantastic £500 for Francis House Children’s Hospice. He completed the route in just 4 hours and 47 minutes.


Commenting on his achievement Wayne says: “It gave me so much encouragement knowing that I was running for such a great cause. Francis House Children’s Hospice provides respite and end of life care for children and young people with life limiting illness along with the necessary support and short-term care for their families. Their work is really inspirational.”He adds: “This could not have happened without the support of my company Metalube and I really appreciated their generous sponsorship. It was a fantastic day that I’ll never forget. I think an estimated 20,000 people lined the route giving us loads of encouragement along the way!”
