Dave Wickham

We are sorry to inform club members that Dave Wickham lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on 15th June 2013 aged 66.

Dave joined Thanet Roadrunners AC not long after the club was established and was a knowledgeable and helpful club member for many years which culminated in him being honoured by being made a life member.  Although he didn’t live in Thanet originally he always raced in his TRR club vest thus spreading the club name beyond Thanet.

His favourite distance was the marathon and in his prime he was a 3-hour marathon man whose enjoyment in his sport was encapsulated by his “catchphrase” of “see you at the races”.

Unfortunately in later life he suffered with various health problems which ended a couple of potential come backs although last year he still completed the Seven Sisters marathon in 7 hours 20 walking with his family.

The funeral will take place at Thanet Crematorium on 1st July at 3.20pm. Family flowers only but donations to Pancreatic cancer UK or CLAPA.
