The next Sussex Grand Prix run is on the 1st March, the Eastbourne Half Marathon. A mainly flat course but there is a hill between miles 2 and 3, with a mixture of town and rural scenery, also taking in the Marina.
Following Eastbourne is Hastings Half Marathon on the 22nd March. The course circumnavigates the ancient town of Hastings, starting on the seafront and following the route of William the Conqueror towards Battle, round the back of the town, along the ridge, and down towards the Old Town and fishing village, then back along the promenade for the last two or so miles to the finish.
Although the first part of the course is tough, mainly uphill, there are some fast times and PB’s as the last two thirds are flat and downhill. Every year support from the locals is outstanding, and they really get behind the runners!
