25th Hastings Half Marathon Sunday 15th March 2009.

Entry Forms have now been launched for the eagerly awaited 25th Running of
the U.K.'s Favouite Half Marathon.

There will be a limit of 5000 for the Event, which is sure to be overbooked,
as runners come from all over the world to celebrate its 25th Birthday.

The Event Organisers, the Hastings Lions Club, would like to see as many of
the original runners from 1985 taking part again. In its first year there
were 1600 entrants

There are only 22 runners who have taken part in all 24 so far, which
includes only two ladies. And they are certain to be going for their own

The beauty of the Event, is that it is for ALL entrants. From Top
Internationals, Club Runners, Fun Runners, Charity Runners, and all ages
from 17 upwards.

Over the years the number of females taking part has grown from 10% of the
field to now over 40% of the Entry.

Any Charity or good cause can use the Event as a Springboard to raise funds
for their own Special Causes.

Entry Forms are at most Sports Shops and Sport Centres, Observer Offices,
Hastings Information Centre, Scorpios, Scollays, or you can enter 'on line'
by going to or download an entry form. Nearly 90%
of entries are now received by 'online' bookings.

For any enquiries, e.mail

Enter Now, and start planning for the Party next March!
