Hastings 36th Half Marathon 2020 - CANCELLED

Whether your goal is to run your first half marathon, take on a challenge with friends or to go for a new personal best, why not sign up for the Hastings Half and run for Pestalozzi?

Voted The Best Half Marathon in the UK by both Men's Running and Women's Running, the course circumnavigates the Ancient Town of Hastings, starting at the Seafront and following the route of William the Conqueror towards Battle, round the back of the Town and down to the Famous 'Old Town' and fishing Village of Hastings, then comes back along the three mile Seafront back to where you started. Although tough for the first part of the course, runners have produced some very fast times and PB's, as the last two-thirds is Flat or Downhill, and then the finish on the Promenade. The Event is for all runners of all ability.

This years event takes place on Sunday 29th March. Every finisher receives a medal and drink after the race, and as part of #TeamPestalozzi you will receive a free running t shirt and support and advice from the fundraising team. Visit out event page on Facebook here and get in touch to register your interest. 

If you decide not to run please come and show your support on the day.

**This event has been cancelled due to health concerns over Covid-19 and will take place again next year.**
