Hastings Brass Award for Hastings Half 2017
Without question, one of the most popular changes we made in our Thirty three Years, was to change from a Medal to a Brass Award for each Finisher.
These unique Brasses, which every year have featured different aspects of Hastings, from 1066 through to such famous people as John Logie Baird, Grey Owl, and even our own ‘Banksy’ (still able to see on the St. Leonards Promenarde),have in some cases to be so well sort after as to be sold on Ebay. They have certainly become Collector’s Items in their own right.
These fine English Horse Brasses have been made since the Middle Ages to decorate Horse Harness. Since the time of Queen Victoria, many different designs have been made, but The Hastings Brass each year remains a Unique Award.
This year's Brass celebrates the Re-opening of Hastings Pier, after it caught Fire in 2010.
A great effort was made to raise the monies required from people and business and Government,and it was a great year for Hastings to see it re-opened in 2016.
Our Peoples Pier is very different from others,and we are so proud of this new Attraction for Hastings. You will be running past it at nearly 12 miles,where this is also a water station.
Whilst we celebrated the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 in 2016, If you have the time on Race Day, you can still see the Statue of Harold in the arms of his wife Enid, in the East End of the Race Gardens after The Battle..
The Brass above is set upon a Leather Martingale, and is a Great way to display your Brass. The Martingales can be purchased from Race Centre, or ‘online’ at www.hastings-half.co.uk and there are options to have Singles or Doubles, or Martingales that will hold four, six or eight Brasses. You can also have a Tab added to the back of your Brass, with your race details. Go to www.mysportingtimes.com to book them.
We trust that you will Appreciate and Enjoy our Hastings brass for 2017
Martingale and a 'No Pins Pack for £5.' plus p&p.
