Virtual Hastings Half Marathon 2021 - now until 21st March 2021

Unfortunately the Hastings Half Marathon for 2021 has been cancelled due to the continuing restrictions arising from the covid pandemic. However, a virtual race option is being offered free of charge, which is great news for the many charities who raise much needed funds through the race.
For many years Pestalozzi students, staff, alumni and volunteers have participated in the event to raise funds. Can you take up the 13.1 mile challenge on our behalf? You can complete the virtual half marathon any time between now and 21st March 2021.

As part of #TeamPestalozzi you will receive a running vest to train in and wear when you complete the race, help to set up your fundraising page, an info pack with a ladybird pin badge and a certificate. Please contact if you're interested in running for us.

Virgin Money London Marathon 2020 - Postponed until 3rd October 2021

We successfully secured a place in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020. The event was due to take place on Sunday 4th October 2020, however due to COVID restrictions it is now taking place on Sunday 3rd October 2021.

Our charity place that was allocated for 2020 goes to Gareth Hiron, who will be running the London Marathon for the second time. Please support Pestalozzi by sponsoring Gareth here - Unfortunately, Gareth won't be able to run in 2021, so will defer the place and run in 2022. 

This means that we won't have anyone running for us this year, so if you are fortunate enough to have already secured a place in the ballot, please consider supporting Pestalozzi as your charity of choice for 2021. You’ll receive a running vest to use in training and on the race day, as well as sponsorship information and support from the Pestalozzi team.

If you are interested please contact Hannah Banham on or call 01424 870444.
