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.


The race has raised £ 38,000 since 2012, massive thanks for your support.


All profits from this race will be donated equally between Macmillan Cancer Support (261017), and Southend Hospital Breast Unit (1057266)
