Half Marathon of the Year – Hastings Half Marathon
The not-for-profit, 33-year-old, race attracts 4,000 runners and no wonder. From the seafront, the course follows the route of William the Conqueror towards Battle, through the ‘Old Town’, the fishing Village of Hastings, then three miles along the seafront again. Bands, choirs and cheerleaders add to the fantastic atmosphere.
Highly Commended – English Half Marathon
“The course is challenging but beautiful with lots of support en route. Lots of well-manned water and gel stations. There’s a fabulous vibe on race day and the medals are out of this world!” – Rachael Flynn
Commended – Isle of Skye Half Marathon
“Battling the wind and hills, and taking in the Skye landscape with a bunch of friendly, like-minded folk was a fantastic experience! Residents shouted encouragement and supplied sweets throughout the route and the pipe band played at the half-way turn. That final mile winding back down towards Portree Bay was pure joy! A brilliant goody bag and technical t-shirt, too.” – Lynn Campbell
