Although we have our plans ready for a safe Event, we will have to wait for a decision from Hastings Borough Council, as to whether The Event can go ahead
Many of the usual things like, Baggage, Changing, Programmes, Medals, Prizes, Hot Drinks, Entertainment, Souvenirs and Spectator Support, will not be possible under UKA Road Race Guidelines. But we would expect to have Wave Starts and Chip to Chip Timing. More information to follow in the New Year.
Thank you for your understanding and support. This Event is put on to enable participants to raise monies for needy causes and Charities, which badly need the Money!
All monies from The Event go back into The Community.
Please keep safely your 2020 Race number and Chip, as you will need this for 2021
Proud to be presented to HRH Princess Anne, upon her visit to open the two new MRI scanners at Conquest Hospital Hastings, which the Hastings Lions Club helped to buy with monies from Hastings Half Marathon.
Alan Mathison Turing O.B.E. FRS
Alan Turing spent some of his childhood in Hastings, lived in Upper Maze Hill, where there is a Blue Plaque, he attended his first school at St.Michael's Day School. His Headmaster recorded his Talent early on,as did subsequent teachers. The Principle of Modern Computers was proposed by Alan Turing in his seminal 1936 paper on computable numbers.
He was The Father of Modern Computer science, and his BOMBE was the name of an electro mechanical machine developed during World War Two by Alan Turing, whilst working as a codebreaker at Bletchley Park,and was famous for breaking the German Enigma Codes. It is estimated that his BOMBE Device shortened the War by two to four years,and saved millions of lives. He has been featured recently in the blockbuster Film 'The Imitation Game, and on Fifty Pound notes. We proudly acknowledge him on this year's Hastings Brass.
