This event is listed on these dates:
A brilliant first half. Hot day brutal hills and amazing support from the people of Hastings and the marshalls. Brilliant race, fantastic day
What a fantastic day... the weather was gorgeous, the organisation fantastic and the people of Hastings provided great support. The medal is a great horse brass!
This is tough hilly course so I'm pleased with my 2:06:43 time. Sorry if you placed a bet... Reading might be a better choice
My first half marathon, aiming for approx 2hrs.
Slightly out, did it in about 2:02, will update with official time. Good race, fantastic weather but very hilly.
probably too optimistic but good to have something to aim for. Update: Oh dear. Barely scraped by with a slight PB and didn't enjoy it. Don't know why it felt so hard but just to keep running took huge mental effort, and felt v spacy near end and afterward. Decided never doing another race. Ever.
Race was very tough the hills were hard and taxing on energy. Happy with PB by 1 second (official time they all count). Course PB by 4min 59 seconds.Excellent day,sunny, friendly, fantastic carnival atmosphere!! enjoyed time with family spent time on the beach and dipped my sore legs in the sea.Cannot really complain it was the same for everyone!!Tough Race!!
2005 took me 2:15:00, 2006 -2:01:38, aimimg for a sub 2hr run in 2007
Hopefully knock 5 minutes off my first half, but it will depend on that wind along the promenade!
Thankfully there was very little wind, but stupidly missed the first water station so was gasping by the next one at 6 miles having done all the hills! Was really happy with the final time and was great to come to back to my town and see some old friends and family.
Congratulations to SparkyMark, Phantom and Stepford Wife on betting on me - my first time being bet on!!!
Only my second half marathon. Apologies for those folks who bet their points on me! Felt below par for most of the run, too warm and too hilly for my tastes! :o(
Well organised and supported run nevertheless!
A good run,beautiful weather but 6 miles into the race my left knee went twang with a bit of pain(to say the least) but I was able to strap it up and finnish slowly.
Not predicting a time for this. Ran 1.36.10 last year but calfs are a bit tight so will see how it goes on the day. Had a slight head cold and too many late nights but got arounsd in a respectable time. No trouble from calf.
What a bad run!! I knew there was something wrong on Saturday during my easy run, legs felt empty.
First 3 miles at 5:45s, then the main uphill part for 2 miles, went backwards, had to stop for a pee, pace from then on 6:30s, I'm demoralised!!!
Hope things get back on track for Paddock Wood half in 3 weeks.
Had a cold this last week and it took it out of me the last couple of miles. very disappointed but what alovely day. The crowds sure came out with the good weather
Really beautiful day for running. Great support. My time was from passing start line to passing finish although official time may be more as it took 3 mins to cross start line. In retrospect great day and great event.
In 2005 I took 02:25 in 2006 02.15. I'd love to get under 2:00!
This was my first Hastings run. The hills were a killer - the just kept on comming. The people of Hastings were fantastic with their support and the event was very well organised. I will definately try to do it next year
Wow! A PB by over 5 minutes, and a great day out. A bit crowded at the beginning after taking ages to find a parking place and arriving quite late at the start. Spent the entire race over-taking people. The hills early on were OK, but I was worried I'd gone off too fast. Held on through miles 5 and 6 and then ran well through to the finish. The last mile seemed long, as I had little left in the tank by that point, but I hung on and got a 1:33 and a special horse brass with a leather strap for being in the first 500.
crap run! school boy error as ran to fast way to early and paid for it big time...hence crap time,
although a personal best over TW 2 weeks previously was hoping to make 1.39 something to psychologically give me a chance of 3.30 in FLM in April but will revise to 3.45 now.
Thos hills at the start took a lot out of me but the crowds were wonderful and the weather gorgeous
SK aka Clive
If I'd realised how close I was to a pb I might have managed to put a bit of a sprint on at the finish, but I think I was done for at the end. Fantastic atmosphere and crowds, went all goosey at the Hospital , the old ladies banging their saucepans were a sight to behold!
Very warm day under 2 hours and Happy : )
