Event Overview: The Hastings Half Marathon is a hilly course, but runners are rewarded with plenty of music and entertainment throughout, and a downhill second half towards a pretty seaside finish. Runners have been hitting the tarmac to enjoy this race for almost forty years - it's steeped in local history and grown to be a firm favourite in the racing calendar. If you're looking for an inspiring challenge, perfectly placed for Spring time marathon training - or even just a very special racing experience in its own right - and an enjoyable day out for the family then The Hastings Half Marathon is the racing delight you've been looking for. Course Details: The course meanders through the town and up to Queensway for a challenging (but exhilarating!) incline before turning onto the ridge, where crowds often gather to cheer and show their support. Pushing on through Ore before turning back towards the picturesque lanes of the Old Town, with roast coloured rooftops glinting in the Spring sun. Then along the seafront to enjoy the final leg of this iconic race, beside a glistening sea and crashing waves. It's a stupendous finish to an extraordinary race. And, you won't want to miss it.
