Congratulations to Hastings parkrun, which has won the Chris Copsey Gold Award for ‘the group that has made a significant difference to their local community life’.

 

Event Director Nick Brown said: “We are so proud to have won this; thank you to all who voted for us. Since Hastings parkrun started in April 2015, it has proved a life-changing event for many people by encouraging them into grassroots running and volunteering.

 

“More than 2,200 people are registered with Hastings parkrun, many of whom had never run before. I would particularly like to thank all the run directors and volunteers who can be very proud of what we have achieved together.”
