Impressed by all those involved

A NOTE to express the joy and pleasure of the 130 plus Hastings Runners who participated in the 29th Hastings Half Marathon.

I am ever so impressed at the support of so many spectators who lined so much of the route despite the bitter cold, ever grateful to the many marshals and helpers, and ever indebted to the Lions for their commitment and organisation in staging this premier event. Thank you all on behalf of Hastings Runners.

To all participants, next up in the local running calendar is the Keith Chandler Memorial five-mile Road Race on Sunday, May 12 from 10.30am start/finish at the town hall. Entry forms are on www.hastings5milerace.co.uk and from Hastings Runners. A flat course with almost guaranteed sunshine and blue skies. All in aid of St Michaels Hospice.

For all your support Hastings Runners thank you.

MICHAEL D HALL
