Cancellation of Hastings Half Marathon on 29th March 2020
The Hastings Lions Club, organisers of the Hastings Half
Marathon, take the safety and Health of all our Entrants, Helpers and
Spectators and suppliers very seriously.
With this in mind, we have no alternative but to cancel this year's Event, and make priority for the Health of our Nation the number one consideration.
We would still encourage runners to keep healthy, and those who are raising monies for needy causes and charities, to still try to run a 'Virtual' distance at some time to obtain your precious sponsorship for those in need. You can also apply for this year's Finishing brass,via our web site contact. You can also view this year's Race Programme 'online' via our w eb site.
It is further unfortunate, that The Hastings Lions Club, will not obviously be able to donate to local needy causes nearly £70,000 that was spent in The Community last year to help those most needy.
At this stage we would offer all entrants a completely FREE ENTRY for next year's Event on Sunday 21st March 2021. You will be automatically entered for next year.
The Health of all People is what is Important at this difficult time, and we would encourage everyone to follow Government guidelines to protect themselves and others from this dreadful virus.
Our thanks to everyone for your valued support and understanding.
