Kirste was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, and underwent six bouts of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She passed away on February 9th 2012, at the age of just 42 after raising more than £50,000 for breast cancer charities by running 23 marathons while fighting the disease.
Her smiling face will be forever missed.
All profits from this race will be donated equally between Macmillan Cancer Support (261017), and Southend Breast Unit (1057266).
Just a reminder:
Do I have to have a barcode?
If you wish to receive a time then yes.
We operate a strict 'No printed barcode - No result' policy at all of our events.
As our scanners are handheld and lower power, they can't penetrate screens, so we can't scan barcodes on smartphones or any other device.
Can I run without a barcode?
Yes, but you won't get a time.
Good Luck to Run Director and long-term Core Team Member Ian Jordan, who is shortlisted for the Rochford District Awards Community Spirit (Volunteer of the Year) Award.
