Entries for the 30th Hastings Half Marathon have soared past the 1,000 mark a month ahead of schedule.
Public interest in the Hastings Lions Club-organised 13.1-mile event seems to be greater than ever ahead of the landmark occasion on Sunday March 23, 2014.
A select band of 16 runners have taken part in all of the previous Hastings Half Marathons and have signed up to continue that proud ever-present record next spring.
You can join them by picking up an entry form from the Hastings Observer office, sports shops and centres or online at www.hastings-half.co.uk
One of the leading events of its kind in the UK, the Hastings Half Marathon attracts an entry of around 5,000 each year, including some high class international runners at the head of the field, and helps raise thounsands of pounds for needy causes.
