Runners invited to sign up to 10k race

Hundreds of amateur runners will have a unique opportunity to pound the Tarmac of a new highway connecting Bexhill and Hastings.

More than 600 people have already signed up for the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road 10k race, to be held on Sunday, September 20.

Participants will get the chance to follow the three-mile course of the new East Sussex County Council (ESCC) highway, as it nears completion and before the road opens to traffic.

Cllr Carl Maynard, ESCC lead member for transport and environment, said: “The 10k race will give people a one-off chance to follow the entire course of the new road on foot, before it opens to motor traffic.”
