Get outside for a great cause this spring in the Hastings Runners 5 Mile race in support of St Michael's Hospice. The pancake flat course along the Hastings seafront is perfect for both experienced runners to smash their PB, and for less experienced runners looking for a new distance challenge.

The Hastings Runners 5 Mile Race route

This pancake flat course starts outside the historic Town Hall in the centre of Hastings adjacent to Priory Meadow Shopping Centre, and is the perfect spring event to fling last year's PB out the window.

The race makes it’s way onto the Hastings Promenade and continues past the Hastings Pier, Warrior Square and many more of Hastings’ famous landmarks, before turning back along the promenade through the Old Town and finishing in front of the iconic Town Hall. Runners will be treated to wonderful seafront views along the majority of the course.

The race is flat, fast and completely traffic free, with the exception of two initial road closures near the start of the race. Cycle lanes do adjoin the course and runners are advised to consider the safety of cyclists as well as themselves, although there will be marshals along the route to assist you.
