Running for refuge update!

A little update about our fabulous team who are running The Royal Parks Half Marathon this Sunday 6th October, on behalf of a charity close to our heart Refuge, who support women and children who have been affected by domestic violence.

Kyra Oates Head of promotions for Benefit Cosmetics UK

We caught up with head runner and Head of Promotions at Benefit Cosmetics UK, Kyra Oates, to get all the gossip.

“Other team members, Jen and Chris, have been in Brazil for 3 weeks, Charlotte in Florida for a fortnight, but overall we’ve each been doing some 3 miles runs in the week but doing a longer 10+ mile run on Sunday’s… and in true Heather Watson style I’ve been doing a spot of tennis too!

Anyone for Tennis?

We’ve been eating lots of pasta and have all agreed no alcohol (the picture was taken pre-agreement) in the last week which helps massively! Jenna has been to the physio as she’s twisted her kneecap, ouch! She’s still going to run on Sunday, and we all want to do it together so we’ll get her through it. Saturday we’ve planned a pasta party to prepare and Sunday morning Kel, thinks that peanut butter on toast is going to give her extra running power – strange girl.  We’ll also take Lucozade tablets and some sweets too for sugar/energy!

There’s a large festival area at the start and finish point in Hyde Park so head down with friends and family to cheer everyone on. The run starts at 9am but the festival is open until 4pm! See if you can spot the Benebabes there…..

We’re a long way off of our target so I would love love love and pennies that you may have to sponsor me and the team: ‘Friends of Benefit!’

Thanks for the update lovely Kyra & let’s show the team our support!

Until next time,
