It was cold.
 
It was wet and it was wild.
 
A stark contrast to the previous week's weather in Eastbourne.
 
But to the 875 runners for Sunday's Eastbourne half marathon none of that mattered. What mattered now was getting to the start line on time and conquering the 13.1 miles ahead of them. 
 
In the midst of all the runners were 42 raising funds and awareness for St Wilfrid's.  An amazing number representing the hospice and a huge thank you to you all.
 
Every Eastbourne half runner battled against the wind and rain over every mile yet they continued to have a smile on their face as they did so.

A brilliant achievement. 

A special mention and thank you also go to our amazing volunteer stewards and fundraising team who cheered and even chased hats along the seafront in support of the runners. The event couldn't happen without you - thank you. 
 
We have uploaded a few images from the event that we managed to capture and will publish a few more in the coming days.
