The Kirste 5 Memorial Race 2014 est. 2012
Incorporating the Kirste 1 mile Family Run
“When it's all over, it's not who you were. It's whether you made a difference."
Benfleet Running Club invites you to remember Kirste Bowman (nee Snellgrove)
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. She joined Benfleet Running Club in 2001 and throughout her treatment she never stopped going to the club, and would train most days. Her smiling face will be forever missed.
Our 2013 race raised £ 8,500, so thanks to everyone who took part!
