Great turn-out from runners

THROUGH your good columns may I write on behalf of Hastings Runners on the magnificent support of the people of Hastings for the 30th Hastings Half Marathon.

The 350-strong membership of Hastings Runners were represented by more than 130 participants and numerous others behind the scenes on or before the day.

I received so many expressions of joy and gratitude not only from our own Hastings Runners but from so very many others, visitors to our town, their pleasure at the fantastic numbers lining the route, yelling and calling their encouragement and support to the strains and efforts of the runners and walkers.

Each and every participant in this great event deserved and earnt that support but on behalf of all who took part, wherever they were from, we must say thank you and render our applause and appreciation to all who made our enjoyment of the 30th Hastings Half Marathon even greater.

Thank you, people of Hastings and thank you to all those behind the scenes, marshalling, et al.
