So, it all started off with the sun shining on the day of the Hastings Half Marathon. However, this was all to change. Our journey started with us getting stuck in a little bit of traffic, but we still made it with plenty of time to spare before the marathon commenced.
It was a great feeling to see the first runners pass us. They were running along in their stride, giving it their all and making it look so easy. We were very proud to see our CSP team, running on behalf of us, dressed in our blue Clean Seas Please t-shirts! It was fantastic that some runners had run in fancy dress; we witnessed a giraffe, a shoe, an American football player, and many a tutu!
Once all the runners had passed our first pit stop, we made our way to the finish line, where we had a Clean Seas Please stand set up. Runners were definitely appreciating our free Clean Seas Please water bottles that we were handing out!
It was at this point that the day took a turn for the worst; a torrential hailstorm. Luckily for us, we had decided to wear our wellies and waterproof jackets! We got very cold at this point, so decided to make our way back to our cars.
We would like to take this time to thank all of those who signed up to our campaign on Sunday; it’s great to have all of your support! Congratulations to all the runners, what an achievement!
