Following our most Fantastic Summer of Sport, and especially the Olympic and
Paralympic Games, now is the time to keep that 'Feel Good Factor' going by
aiming to take part in the popular Hastings Half Marathon on Sunday 24th
We have all seen what can be achieved, so now is a good time to start
getting fit for next March, and the first step is to enter The Event, and
have a target or Goal to aim for.
Entry forms are NOW available at most Sports Centres and Shops, and in the
Hastings Area also at Hastings Observer Offices, Hastings Town Information
Scollays and Premier Travel Chauffeurs on the Ridge. Also at St.Leonards
You can also enter 'online' by going to the official web site
The Event organised by the Lions Club of Hastings for the 29th year, is open
to ALL abilities, aged from 17 upwards, and will also be hosting the Sussex
Half Marathon Championships for 2013.
The Event can be used as a springboard by any needy cause or Charity, to
raise funds, and ALL monies raised by The Event by the Lions Club, goes
back into The Community.
There are categories for Business Teams, Sports Teams, Pub Teams, Club
Teams, Charity Teams, families and Husband and Wives, and awards in age
categories, and even a Fancy Dress Award.
Already it has been mentioned for a number of runners to be taking part to
raise funds for the William Parker Track Appeal, as well as increasing the
awarement of everyone to support this basic Athletic Track Appeal, which is
essential for the future of Athletics in Hastings. Get behind this Appeal
now by committing to 'Run for the Track', and make a Big Statement to all
We would also like to see more disabled Athletes taking part to follow the
very successful Paralympics. But please let us know who you are when
There will also be the 23rd Running of the SAGA sponsored Mini-Run for
youngsters aged 11-16. A great chance to be part of a Major Event, and raise
money for a cause.
