THE 27th Hastings Half Marathon took place on Sunday, and once again it was a huge success.
I would like to take this opportunity of expressing my thanks, on behalf of the Lions Club of Hastings, to the thousands of competitors who took part, and the small army of volunteers who provided invaluable assistance to my fellow Lions to make the day possible. Without their help the event could not take place. Finally, a special vote of thanks to the many supporters who lined the route to encourage the competitors.
The club is already receiving much positive feedback from competitors complimenting us on the quality of the race, and in particular, the support from the crowds who cheer them on all the way round the route. So often a few words of encouragement can take away the pain of weary, aching legs.
The support we receive on the day has helped us make the Hastings Half Marathon one of the premier running events in the UK, and we hope we can count on your support again on March 25, 2012.
