In short: Very low key and quiet marathon..away from the crowds..bliss. In full: Cheeky undulations on this simple route with some good scenery. Plenty of water stations but plenty of traffic too, mind those swinging caravans!
In short: Fantastic Hastings as ever In full: this is my 6th Hastings half and once again the whole town was out, its great to see a town get behind a race and its organiser. Can't fault the event. Enough water stations, roads closed, chip timed, PLENTY of water, lucozade and free tea at the finish + another great horse brass to add to my collection.
Unlike Bath..it always starts on time too ;-) Date of review: March 15, 2009
In short: As always a well organised event In full: 4 year for me and still a great event, challenging course but with support from Budgens there were some nice touches...like the magnificent spot prizes!! Goody bag was very welcome and useful. Glad it started early as it was warm and left plenty of time for a picnic brunch by the pond. Date of review: August 10, 2008
In short: Thanks must go to the people of Hastings In full: Very well organised and extremely well supported even in the rain. keep chipping away at the hill then the only way forward is down. Date of review: March 16, 2008
In short: Good well established event - right on my doorstep! In full: Apart from the medal shortage and a few timing mix ups there were no big problems. Any big event is going to have a few gliches.
Not sure what all the fuss about goody bags is about. Immediate needs were served, banana, choccy bar and water. Marshalls were friendly and encouraging. Course is in the main flat...with a couple of short sharpish climbs but nothing to worry about. Date of review: February 19, 2008
