Metronet UK are the latest business to start the race to win Captain Manchester’s Cool Runnings Award.

14 staff from the UK’s most advanced Internet Service Provider have pledged to try and raise more money than Express Solicitors, who already have 19 signed up.

The Sales and Engineering departments of Metronet UK are hoping to raise the most money, in order to be awarded the Captain Manchester Cool Runnings Award, which will go to the business who has raised the most money the week following the run (Monday 18th May). For full details click here.

Although some members of staff have ran the 10k before, this will be the first time for many. Will Lawson, Head of Account Management who will be taking part on the day is looking forward to racing with his colleagues: “The team are ready and raring to go for the Great Manchester 10k. We are really happy to be able to support Forever Manchester by raising funds for them and hopefully we can raise enough to win the Cool Runnings Award! Good luck to all those taking place, see you at the finish line!” 

We have limited charitable spaces available, which cost a reduced fee of £25 instead of £38. We ask that people taking up our charitable spaces pledge to raise a minimum of £150. To sign up, head to our event page.
