Formby firefighter set to run half marathon in full firefighting gear for charity

A Formby firefighter will be running a ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ half marathon in full firefighting kit to raise money for charity.

Kimberley Antoine, a firefighter from Formby based at Aintree Community Fire Station, will take on the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Half Marathon on May 28 in full firefighting gear and a breathing apparatus set.

The kit, weighing around 15kg, will be worn by Kimberley throughout the 13.1-mile race which will begin at the Albert Dock on Liverpool Waterfront and end at Liverpool Echo Arena.

Fitness enthusiast Kimberley, who has been a firefighter for two years, will be raising money for baby charity Tommy’s, which funds research in to the cause of premature births, stillbirths and miscarriages, and The Fire Fighters Charity which supports firefighters and their families in times of need.

A qualified personal trainer who regularly competes in triathlons, marathons and half marathons, Kimberley said: “I regularly compete in races yet this is going to be my greatest challenge yet!

“However, running 13.1 miles in full firefighting kit and breathing apparatus doesn’t compare to the challenges other people have to deal with in life.

“The two charities I am running for make an incredible difference to people in times of need. I know first-hand the devastating effect losing a child has on families and Tommy’s funds research in to pregnancy problems and helps parents have healthy pregnancies.

“The Fire Firefighters Charity provided services, help and support to serving and retired fire service staff who have suffered illness, injury and psychological trauma.

“Any donations, no matter how small, will make a huge difference to families affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and trauma. I am so grateful for everyone’s support.”
