Hastings Half Marathon Challenge.

At a 70th Birthday Lunch for Race Director Eric Hardwick last week, which 
was attended by Former Winner Derek Stevens(1985 and 1986), a Challenge was 
issued by Derek to Eric.

To celebrate the 30th Hastings Half in 2014, Derek Stevens said he would 
make a Comeback and run the Race again, if Eric would also do the same! 
Derek and Eric had both previously run The Event six times, but due to 
various injuries had not taken part in recent years.

Eric also received Birthday Cards from former winners Eamonn Martin(Hastings 
and London in 1993), and Paul Evans(1991),which nearly brought him to tears.

Eric must be one of the longest serving Race Directors still going strong 

An interesting aspect of entries coming in steadily for next year's Event on 
24th March 2013, is that where the first Hastings Half had 14% entries by 
Female Entrants, for next year the percentage is running at 48%. It just 
shows that 'Girl' Power is being very popular these days.

Also  of interest is that entries for next year are at present running at a 
20% increase for this time of the year. Is this the Olympic Legacy?
