2013 Hastings Half Marathon preview

It is expected that the Kenyan Challenge will continue, with Matthew Kimutai 
and Peter Emase battling it out for victory, but watch Ethiopian Hailu 
Million who is a vastly improving athlete, and could split the Kenyans.

Polloine Wanyjiku (Kenya) is the outstanding female athlete, and I see no one 
able to beat her.

The Sussex County Half Marathon championships, for which over 320 runners 
have qualified, will be contested by hot favourite James Baker (Chichester) 
RN 1143,

Who is the most prolific and successful runner in Sussex, but it is hoped 
that local athlete Daniel Anderson RN 3157, will give him a Race, and both 
be in the top ten overall places. Also watch for the evergreen Jamie Larkin 
RN 3158, and the improving James Mountford RN 2566,for both County and local 

The top female athlete looks to be Samantha Alvarez RN. 50, who could do the 
double of county and local victories, and be in top five on day.

Watch out for Pete Prescott (2147) carrying his Olympic Torch.

More bands are lining the route than ever this year, to give all the 
participants the best possible support and encouragement. And with over 150 
charities / needy causes represented thousands of pounds are expected to be 

Lots of fancy dress and interesting characters and items to add to the 

Late entries are still coming in.Enter 'online at www.hastings-half.co.uk
