Meet the Team

John Lill

John Lill – Marathon Man

A little info about myself, I will be 68 years old in November, I have run all my life, starting with track and field at school, fell running, and never stopped running since.

So why does a 67 year old man, run for mile upon mile every other day, winter and Summer, even when on holiday, wearing a light blue Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys T Shirt, black lycra compression shorts, and yellow knee length compression socks.

Brethren I wish I had a pound for every time someone has asked that particular question; I would be a rather wealthy man. I usually reply by saying:

I believe that the lives of all children and young people should be free from poverty, abuse and discrimination; I fervently believe that we have to help the most vulnerable children and young people, to help to transform their lives and fulfil their potential. I sincerely believe we have a duty to help those less fortunate in society; society has been very kind to me and I suppose it’s my way of giving a little back.
