It is always good to see a sponsor on the other side of the sporting fence!

Porcher Industries’ Charlie Exton is competing in the London Marathon in clothing using the company’s newly developed lightweight blast resistant fabric.

Charlie Exton, a defence specialist at Porcher Industries, believes his company’s newly developed next generation blast resistant fabric is so light and comfortable that he plans to run this weekend’s London Marathon in a t-shirt and socks made from the material.

Team Army sponsor, Porcher, plan to utilise their technology in sponsoring army parachuting, sailing and paragliding with the cutting edge, lightweight, super-strong material, in the provision of material to manufacture various sporting canopies and sails. We look forward to seeing the results and in the meantime we hope Charles puts in a blistering (not literally) time in the marathon.

Only 26 miles to go Charles, good luck!
