The Hastings Half Marathon is organised by Hastings Lions Club and encorporates the Sussex Half Marathon Championship. One of the best parts about this race is the tremendous entertainment around the course - several choirs and a couple of bands entertain 5000 runners as they make there way through pleasant surroundings. All the profits go to charity and there is even a free creche facility for your little ones.
The course circumnaviagates the historic town of Hastings. The race starts at the seafront close to where William the Conqueror landed before heading to the 'Old Town'. The last 3 miles is very quick along the seafront to the finish.
